About Harris Primary Academy Kenley

About Harris Primary Academy Kenley

Harris Primary Academy Kenley 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.

Harris Primary Academy Kenley is an outstanding school. It is outstanding not just because of the academic achievements of the pupils but for many other reasons too. The pupils are diligent, polite and hard working. They have a love for learning and an inquisitive nature. The staff at the academy are talented and dedicated and our parents and wider community support what we do.

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.
