Pace

Our aims and values underpin our curriculum, teaching and learning.  We revisit and reflect on these in our day to day work with the pupils and wider community. Our aims and values are strongly reflected in our Culture for Learning Policy and  our expectations of  all staff and pupils.

We aim to ensure the positive mental health and emotional wellbeing  for all children to ensure they are happy and can achieve to their full potential.

British Values

At HPAPL we aim to uphold the importance of ‘acceptance and engagement with the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs; the pupils develop and demonstrate skills and attitudes that will allow them to participate fully in and contribute positively to life in modern Britain’ as laid out in the Ofsted Schools Inspections Handbook, 2015.

 We aim to:

  • Provide a safe,  welcoming and stimulating environment where children enjoy learning and playing
  • Foster a love of learning within a structured, broad and balanced curriculum
  • Support our pupils to grow up well in modern Britain by making informed choices, staying safe and by valuing opinions within the context of mutual respect and understanding
  • Provide high standards of teaching to develop and deepen knowledge, skills and understanding in all subjects
  • Develop self - esteem so each pupil has positive belief in their individual abilities and potential.
  • To develop learning skills by encouraging a sense of curiosity, open-mindedness, perseverance, objectivity, reflection and critical thinking.
  • To nurture pupil diversity emphasising individual talents in a wide range of fields, including academic, music, sport, art and drama.

Our Values:

  • We value the way in which all children are unique, and our curriculum promotes respect for the views of each individual, as well as for people of all cultures.
  • We value tolerance, respect and promote fair play in all we do
  • We value a working partnership with parents  and families to support each pupil’s  learning, progress and well-being
  • We value the spiritual and moral development of each pupil, as well as their intellectual and physical growth.
  • We value the importance of each person in our community. We organise our curriculum so that we promote co-operation and understanding between all members of our community.
  • We value our environment and we aim through our curriculum to teach respect for our world, and how we should care for it.

We also want to be available to our pupil's parents/guardians when they need to speak to us about any concerns, worries or updates you feel you may need. In the first instance please contact your child's teacher or Anthony Delaney on info@harrisprimaryacademyphiliplane.org.uk should you wish to make contact with someone at the school and he will direct you accordingly.

For any queries relating to SEN(D) matters, please mark your correspondence for the attention of Alison Berry and she will respond to you as a matter of priority.
