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.


We would like to welcome you to Harris Primary Academy Purley Way. It is an incredibly exciting time for our school. We have an opportunity to lay the foundations and to work collaboratively to build a safe, nurturing and inspiring environment, which offers educational excellence for our community and ensures that all children can make the best start to their academic journey.

At HPA Purley Way we will work tirelessly to provide a fun and creative Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which evokes and inspires curiosity, and exploration through play.  The individual needs and abilities of every child will be extended through tailored, high quality provision.

Ethos and Aims Statement

It is our aim that children achieve two fundamental milestones whilst at Harris Primary Academy Purley Way:

  • To develop a love for learning
  • To fulfil their academic and social potential

Through a broad and balanced curriculum, our ambition is to inspire and support each child to understand and demonstrate our ‘Golden Rules’ of Showing Respect, Taking Responsibility and Making the Right Choices.

In their first year at school, children will be taught to read, taught to write and taught to understand basic mathematical concepts.  Our ethos is that ‘ All children have the right to be safe, happy and respected so that they enjoy their learning and reach their full potential.’ At Harris Primary Academy Purley Way we are passionate in our desire to enable your child to discover what’s possible!
