To all those staff who have given up their free time, their PPA, their leadership time, their break time, their lunchtime, their before and after school time, all to make our schools survive one more day- from the bottom of my heart and all my fellow heads - thank you. https://t.co/z5WmquQNg8

Keys to Success - Achieving Success Together

ACHIEVING SUCCESS TOGETHER

At Harris Primary Academy East Dulwich, we support our pupils to develop the character attributes, traits and behaviours that we believe will help to underpin success in school and beyond, both now and in their future lives.  We call these the East Dulwich Keys to Success and we believe these are the ‘keys’ to unlocking future success. At HPAD we have agreed a set of character attributes (Keys to Life) and a set of learning attributes (Keys to Learning), and the focus on developing these in our pupils is at the core of our ethos at Harris Primary Academy East Dulwich – it underpins everything we do from our curriculum to our approach to behaviour management.

Our Keys to Success emphasise the crucial link between the way in which children learn and their social knowledge and behaviour.  Our Keys to Learning link closely to our Keys for Life and support us all in achieving success.

Our Keys to Life

Keys to Life is more than just a subject - it is about helping our pupils grasp what is ethically important in situations and how to act for the right reasons, so that they become more autonomous and reflective. Our pupils need to decide the kind of person they wish to become, to learn to choose intelligently between alternatives, to develop good sense and to ultimately become good citizens.

At Harris Primary Academy East Dulwich, we have identified eight character attributes or Keys to Life:

  • Determination
  • Kindness
  • Community spirited
  • Respect
  • Integrity
  • Self-control
  • Communication
  • Responsibility

 

Key to Success

Description

Determination

Staying with a task until it is complete, even when it is unpleasant or difficult

Kindness

Being friendly, generous and considerate.

Community spirited

Being ready to help others in our community as needed. Having a friendly, generous nature that encourages those around us.

Respect

Having polite consideration for ourselves, others, property and those in authority.  Being considerate and understanding of others without compromising our own values.

Integrity

Being truthful with our words and actions. Learning what is right and wrong and choosing what is right.

Self-control

Being able to manage our words, actions and emotions, through our own initiative, and without supervision.

Communication

Being able to interact well with others either by speaking, using sign language, non-verbal communication, writing or another medium.

Responsibility

Being in charge of what we say and do, accepting the consequences of our actions, and being accountable for our own learning.

 

Our Keys to Learning

At Harris Primary East Dulwich, we believe in promoting excellence in learning through our Keys to Learning, providing a common language for everyone in our community to discuss their learning to ensure our pupils are engaged, challenged and reaching their potential.

We have identified eight learning behaviours or Keys to Learning:

  • Curiosity
  • Resilience
  • Conscientious
  • Independence
  • Collaboration
  • Challenge-seeking
  • Attentive
  • Resourceful

We promote the East Dulwich Keys to Success in many ways, including:

  • The language we use as a community to discuss learning and behaviour;
  • The way we celebrate learning;
  • The decisions we make as an Academy;
  • Our approach to behaviour management.
