Wellbeing is always important to HPAPW but especially at present. We love Adhish's affirmations. Why don't you repeat them after him?


Don’t forget you have until 9am to fill in this week’s reading bookmark form before Celebration Assembly this afternoon! We love that our children are still working hard on ‘Read the Rainbow’ at home! 🌈

Alicia sewed a little pillow for her fav today after DT class. ☺️


Thank you! Having lovely comments from our parents always makes our day!


Mrs Lambert Dale is incredibly proud of the 5 classes with 100% attendance today! Well done to Robin, Finch, Swan, Kingfisher and Flamingo Classes!


Even though our lessons are looking a bit different at the moment, the learning is still outstanding!


One of our fabulous families learning at home with their loaned laptops. Their parents said, “Thank you so much as it would not have been possible without the help of Harris Primary Academy Purley Way.”


Hi, Can you please send us a DM also we can let you know about something? Thanks


Check out Week in Pictures. You’ll often see photos of our super HPAPW children and this week is no exception!


Retweetd From Mayor of Croydon

Thanks so much for the invitation. It was a pleasure to virtually meet you and the children and to open the roof garden.


Completely agree Chris! HPAPW are lucky to have governors like you fully behind our ethos. 😊🎉


We love finishing our week with Celebration Assembly! Well done to everyone for their hard work this week. We loved listening to a favourite school song about our first core value ! Here it is for you all to enjoy this weekend!


Thank you to for opening our roof garden today. It didn’t take long for our Year 3s to find the stage!


We are pleased to share our roof terrace transformation to a roof top garden! 🌸🌼🌺🌿 Thank you to for their hard work. We can’t wait to get planting and to have the children using it every day.

Join the Winter Mini Challenge The challenge has been extended and will now end on 19 February 2021. Sign up at & join the reading heroes today!


We know that children at home are still completing their 'Read the Rainbow' bookmarks. When finished, please complete our new online form so we can send certificates to you. Last year, we were inundated with emails about them so we cannot wait to see who's been busy!
