Harris Primary Academy Crystal Palace rated 'Good' by Ofsted

Harris Primary Academy Crystal Palace has made rapid progress to be rated as a ‘Good’ school within two years of opening. The Academy joined the Harris Federation in 2013, replacing Malcolm Primary School which was in ‘Special Measures’. Ofsted inspectors visited last month and found it to be ‘Good’ overall and in each of the five individual categories they looked at: achievement, teaching, behaviour, leadership and early years education. In their report, inspectors said: “The Principal and other senior leaders have secured good improvements since the academy opened. The quality of teaching has improved. Pupils say that lessons are more interesting and that this has helped to improve their behaviour.”   “The teaching of literacy, reading and mathematics is good. Teachers have high expectations of what pupils should achieve.”   “Teaching motivates and inspires pupils. It helps them develop the skills needed to succeed in later life.”   “In national tests at the end of Year 6 in 2014, pupils’ attainment in mathematics and reading was above average. There is a similar picture of pupils working above expected standards in the current year.”   “The academy ensures that all groups of pupils do equally well. Disabled pupils or those who have special educational needs achieve well.”   “Pupils’ positive attitudes in lessons contribute to their good learning. They feel safe and behave well. They are considerate, polite and well-mannered.”   “The academy works well with parents. Most are extremely supportive of the academy. They are particularly pleased with the care shown for their children.” Inspectors also praised the school’s sponsor, saying “the Harris Federation provides excellent support to other leaders. They relentlessly pursue excellence and do not accept second best.” Aliki Constantopoulou, the Academy’s Principal, said: “We are very proud of the rapid progress that we have made as a school, and are pleased that Ofsted has recognised it in their report. I am particularly glad that they have picked out our strong relationship with parents and our success in helping all pupils achieve. We are excited to build on this feedback and go one better in our next report.” Sir Dan Moynihan, Chief Executive of the Harris Federation, said: “Congratulations to all children and staff on this strong report. The school is a very safe, caring and supportive place, and it is great that excellent improvements in teaching are leading to higher pupil achievement. Well done everyone.”

A brand new free school 'Harris Professional Skills Sixth Form'

The Harris Federation is delighted that our application to open a brand new free school sixth form in Croydon has been given the go-ahead by the government. Harris Professional Skills Sixth Form will be housed on the site of the vacant South Norwood police station, and will offer 230 places, giving priority to local students. We will fully refurbish the site to provide a well-equipped learning environment.  We hope this will be complete by September 2018, with the school opening on a temporary site elsewhere in September 2017. The sixth form will address local need for vocational provision. Pathways will include the opportunity for students to gain the Technical Baccalaureate, which develops technical, hands-on skills as well as transferable soft skills and requires the student to continue with a Maths level 3 qualification. Students will also have the opportunity to sit GCSE retakes, with a suite of traditional GCSEs on offer. We will provide education with drive and ambition for: Students who wish to stay on in a smaller sixth form environment and have choice and diversity in the provision they opt to follow; Students who are new to the country and have not yet had the opportunity to obtain GCSE grades that allow them to progress to the next phase of education; Students who are vulnerable or require more pastoral care and progress management than an FE College can provide. In September 2013, we opened Harris Aspire, a free school offering alternative provision for 135 students from years 7-11. This was placed temporarily on its current site in Beckenham, but will be moving to the site of the South Norwood police station, along with the new sixth form. Sandra Miles, Principal of Harris Aspire, said: “We are thrilled to be offering Croydon a new and high quality sixth form that caters to its need for more vocational education. In light of the current developments in the town centre, giving students the opportunity to gain qualifications in sectors such as Business Retail and Construction will enable them to make a real difference to the local community. “Housing a conventional sixth form with an alternative provision school is an unusual arrangement, but it will allow both to benefit from a shared pool of specialist staff and facilities, and to run some joint classes. The site puts us right at the heart of the community, and we look forward to establishing the new school.” We also hope to work with Croydon Council to use the new building to meet their need for additional, high quality and aspirational alternative provision for secondary students from the borough. We will post further information about this as and when it becomes available.
