Retweetd From NSPCC

Going back to school can be difficult for some children. It can help to get into a good routine before term starts. We've got tips on getting into a back-to-school routine and more advice on supporting children with school:


After the success of Mr Hollis’ cook along, we return to the kitchen for Mrs Lambert-Dale’s bake along! 🧁 👩‍🍳 🎂 Don’t forget to get your ingredients for Friday!


We can’t wait to see your costumes on Thursday! See our letter on MCAS (resent from before half term) if you need any ideas for easy costumes!

Please contact us and ask for Miss Ibrahim if you feel your child may need some support regarding the return to schools on Monday 8th March.


Next week will be time for us to get back in to the kitchen for Bake Along! Here are the ingredients you will need. We’ll be making brownies - nut free, dairy free and vegan friendly if required! Don’t forget it’s Miss Arnold’s Draw Along tomorrow!


Don't forget you only have a few days left to upload your February Community Champion photos and videos to the Teams assignment. We have loved looking at all of the great activities you have been up to at home. Mrs Lambert-Dale is waiting to send messages back to you!😀


Time to get creative everyone! Bring a paper, pencil, colouring pencils/pens/paint. 🎨 ✏️ 🖼

Harris Primary Purley Way Curriculum Intent

At its heart, our curriculum aims to foster and develop children who are confident, interested and well-rounded.  Confident in themselves as individuals, and in their abilities as resilient learners. Interested in the world around them, and able to question the things that they see. Well-rounded, in that they have been exposed and introduced to a curriculum that has breadth and depth, and can make links and connections with the world around them. Able to thrive in academic learning but also able to engage in extra currcicular activites, which foster a love of learning. Our core values of empathy, friendship, positivity, creativity, individuality, kindness, curiosity, resilience, patience and courage run throughout this.

Ensuring Equality and Inclusion at Harris Primary Purley Way

Harris Primary Purley Way welcomes all children and values them as individuals, treating them equally and with respect. We believe that all children have the right to have their own needs incorporated into their curriculum in order to achieve success through the following approaches;

  • Provide an accessible environment, which is secure and safe, so that all our children can flourish.

  • We believe that all teachers are teachers of children with special educational needs and it is therefore a whole school responsibility to ensure that these children’s needs are addressed.

  • Through staff working together as a team, and in partnership with pupils and their parents and carers, we strive to ensure that our aims are met.

  • Ensure all staff are aware of anti-discriminatory practice, promoting and valuing equality and diversity.

  • Promote early identification of children with additional needs to ensure interventions are in place to address their needs.

  • Monitor the progress of all our children to ensure they are meeting their full potential.

  • Work with all external agencies and organisations

  • To build relationships with other schools within our community including specialist and out-with Harris Federation.

  • We ensure that our curriculum is fully inclusive and will not discriminate against the protected characteristics: age, disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation.  

  • Our inclusive teaching approach ensures that all children can access the learning using resources and strategies that they may need, including modified language, additional support or resource.

  • Follow the guidance in the SEN Code of Practice, Equalities Act 2014 and The Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014
