What the school offers its staff

Situated in the heart of Beckenham, our academy might be small with only one form in each year, but our ambitions for our pupils are anything but. We are part of the larger Harris Federation, and we enjoy strong, enriching partnerships with other academies within the federation, particularly those around the Bromley borough.

At Harris Primary Academy Beckenham Green, we recognise that the school experience is more than just academics. It's about creating a safe, happy, and respectful environment where everyone is valued, and individuality is celebrated. We are dedicated to fostering an atmosphere of mutual respect and kindness. After all, every child has the right to feel safe, happy and respected, and this is central to our ethos.

We strive to cultivate curiosity, enthusiasm, and a passion for learning. With a focus that extends beyond the classroom and into the wider community, our learners have the opportunity to grow into citizens of Beckenham and the world.

We are driven by a belief that education has the power to be life-changing. To that end, we strive to create an environment that instills a love of learning, encourages students to dream big, and equips them with the skills and knowledge necessary to achieve those dreams.

In addition to the opportunities for career development and progression, we also offer a competitive rewards and benefits package which includes a Performance and Loyalty Bonus, Pension Scheme with generous employer contributions, a Wellbeing Cash Plan including access to a virtual GP, electric car scheme, and many other benefits.
