One of the exhilarting things about being a small part in is watching huge success of the students we serve across all the schools not just doing the arts: but excelling. Here at 40% got a 9 in arts based subjects. https://t.co/zT0iUFkjon

The quote was an answer to a question. Context is the kind of child who wld otherwise not achieve b/c of their circs pre COVID compounded by lockdown. In that situation, it is better for the child to get fewer quals than take all subjects but in the end have little to show for it

5/5: And, as explained to the reporter, but not set out in her article, whether this happens at all will also depend on the Ofqual consultation on 2021 exams – eg whether they reduce the content or introduce choice in the syllabus.

4/5: The subjects they continue with would be based on what they want to do for their A Levels. Our pupils choose and pass languages and arts subjects at significantly higher rates than other pupils nationally. This won’t change. See https://t.co/ZH9H1MyHoM

3/5: The overwhelming majority will take the full range of subjects. But in EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES, it may be that a minority of pupils need to take fewer subjects in order to cover the content of the rest of their choices in the depth needed to pass.

2/5: The example we gave to the reporter of the kind of pupil who may take fewer subjects: someone badly persistently absent before lockdown, then who missed three months because of lockdown - and who cannot be expected to pass 8 or 9 GCSEs with just two terms of teaching.

05/07/20

1/5: The Sunday Times has amended its online article to clarify that a MINORITY of Harris pupils could take fewer GCSEs next year. In reality, this will be a tiny no. of pupils who haven't engaged with online learning and who cannot catch up in the 2 terms left before their exams

Academy Description

Harris Primary Academy Benson opened in September 2013. We have more than 400 lively young minds at our Academy. Children are supported to be the best they can be by our dedicated teachers and support staff. You can find out more about our Academy in this section of our website.

Academy Ethos

Whatever a child’s background or starting point, we want to make sure that they finish Year 6 with the academic skills, social skills and knowledge necessary to succeed. Every lesson at our school is creative and there is plenty of time for children to think, to play, to discover and wonder.

Each child is taught in the way that suits them best and we step in quickly if a change is needed. For some children, this might involve one-to-one support if they are finding something difficult and for others it could mean stretching them more to keep them interested.  

Our Academy is relaxed and comfortable but pupils know that good behaviour is expected of them. They are frequently praised and rewarded for trying their best and for being kind, hard-working and well-behaved.

We want the Academy to feel friendly and welcoming and we always make sure that every pupil has at least one friend. Our children are taught to respect each other and their teachers.

There is a zero tolerance approach to any type of bullying.
