Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Our Curriculum

As learners at Harris Primary Academy Philip Lane our children are expected to do their best and  value their education.  As a Literacy specialist academy  we dedicate a lot of class time to ensuring our pupils become confident communicators, readers and writers, alongside developing  imagination, creativity and confidence. Our aim is to prepare all students as fully as possible for their secondary education so that they are ready to hit the ground running when they change school at age 11.

There are daily lessons in mathematics, reading and literacy for children of all ages. As pupils progress from our  Early Years,  the curriculum and teaching styles will evolve so we continue to arouse our pupils' natural curiosity  alongside teaching pupils the key  skills and knowledge set out in the National Curriculum. Other subjects including science, computing, religious and physical  education are taught each week.   Homework letters and curriculum snapshots are sent home to families at the start of each new half term and are also available from the link in the menu to the left.

Teachers work in teams, supported by subject specialists to develop  themes each half term  to teach other subjects (including history, geography, art and design). Much of this learning is supported by our strong emphasis on arts education including drama, dance, music and visual art. This means  we can keep the children's learning very topical and relevant. It also enables us to promote curriculum links and  purposeful opportunities for children to  apply  their  reading, writing, computing, scientific  and mathematical skills across all curriculum subjects.  Please click on the links to the right to view  our  curriculum overviews for each year group. 

We spend time with all our children helping them to understand what they can achieve now as well as what they need to do to become even better. Teachers' marking focuses children on their next steps and encourages pupils to respond and to reflect on their learning.  Teachers are expected to know exactly where the children in their class are in terms of achievement and the senior leaders set ambitious targets for all pupils at the start of each year.

Children with identified Special Educational Need or Disability (SEND) are assessed to be included on the Special Educational Needs register.  Provision for these children is then mapped to ensure that they are able to access the full range of curriculum opportunities to progress and succeed.

Wherever possible we bring in subject specialists to enhance children’s learning. Currently subject specialists teach physical education, music, Spanish and, in some year groups , science and swimming.  We also have a senior teacher specialising in primary/secondary school transition. As  well as engaging our year 6 pupils in the excitement of change, this prepares them for a smooth progression to secondary school.
