An inspiring curriculum is the key to igniting a child’s passion to learn. Here at Harris Primary Academy Purley Way we plan for a fun, energising and impactful curriculum to provide the key ingredients to support a child's progression. Our curriculum embeds our school vision of ‘Excellence for All’ by nuturing our school values; Resilience, Empathy, Achievement, Communication, Honesty at every step. Our curriculum encourages and allows children to ask questions, be reflective and independent learners, collaborate and be aspirational. We ensure meaningful learning through a literacy rich curriculum which focuses on key texts to encapsulate the whole topic. Each topic begins with a hook to ignite a child’s interest, which is followed with a line of enquiry whereby children investigate a theme. Deeper thinking is then encouraged through reflection prompting children to ask more questions; ‘the answer is just the beginning!’ This mastery approach to planning and delivery of our curriculum cements understanding and reasoning.
