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

Welcome from the Head of Academy
Welcome to Harris Primary Academy East Dulwich. This is one of East Dulwich’s newest schools and is part of The Harris Federation of Schools which has an established track record of high standards. In 2017, the Academy was graded OUTSTANDING in all areas by OFSTED.
Children are at the heart of all we do. We are a happy, welcoming and inclusive school, supporting a rich diversity of families in our area. Our vision - Achieving Success Together - recognises the importance of the relationship between school and home in children’s development. Parents/carers are welcome as partners in their child’s education and there is a strong parent group who work hard to promote the school, raise funds and support learning.
We provide a vibrant learning environment which nurtures and supports children. Pupils are encouraged to be responsible for their learning, to grow in confidence and become independent. In recognition of the work in this area, the school received UNICEF's Rights Respecting School Award in 2017.
We offer an exciting and engaging curriculum where teachers and pupils work together to ensure high quality learning experiences that enable every pupil to achieve their very best. This includes well-structured lessons, opportunities to learn to play a musical instrument, to use new technologies, to learn outside the classroom through engaging educational visits and to learn away from home through high quality residential trips in Key Stage 2.
I hope that this website gives you all the information you need about our Academy. If you are starting to make decisions about your child’s education, please do book an appointment at one of our open mornings so that you can see for yourself what we have on offer.
Mrs Betty Johnson, Acting Head of Academy.
