Big thanks to Charlotte for raising the issue of single-use plastics in our kitchen. After a few emails this practice has now been stopped. A suggestion box is on order to make it easier for our amazing pupils to let us know their ideas for making changes for the better!!

Welcome

Our Academy opened in September 2014 in order to meet significant demand from East Dulwich families for new primary places. We started with a Reception cohort and currently have children in year groups from Reception to Year 3 and will continue to grow by a year group at a time.  We moved into our new building in September 2016, providing a bright and modern space for learning.

Children lie at the heart of what we do at Harris Primary East Dulwich. We are a happy, ambitious and inclusive school, reflecting the rich diversity of families in our area. We were delighted in May 2017 when Ofsted judged us to be 'outstanding' in all areas. 

At Harris Primary East Dulwich, we aim to make learning irresistible, ensuring children develop a genuine, life-long, love of learning and that every child flourishes. We do this by providing the best possible education for all of our pupils. We believe that we can provide the very best opportunities for every single child in the school through our vision of ‘Achieving Success Together' which is underpinned by our ‘Keys to Success’.

We pride ourselves on providing a vibrant learning environment which nurtures and supports children. We encourage our pupils to be responsible for their learning, to grow in confidence and become independent. The Philosophy for Children (P4C) programme is a key feature of our school and the work that we do to prepare our children for their rights and responsibilities as global citizens. In recognition of our work in this area, we were awarded Level 1 of UNICEF's Rights Respecting School Award in July 2017. We offer an exciting and engaging creative curriculum where teachers and pupils work together to ensure high quality learning experiences that enable every pupil to achieve their very best.

Staff, children, parents, governors and the Harris Federation work together at Harris Primary East Dulwich in a culture of collaboration and support, committed to providing a calm and stimulating environment. Mutual respect amongst and between adults and children is an integral part of our culture, where everyone is valued. We believe that these things all contribute to the warm and welcoming atmosphere, which so many visitors comment on when coming to Harris Primary East Dulwich.

Parents/carers are welcomed as partners in their child’s education as we believe that our pupils learn best when members of staff and parents/carers work in partnership, so we value your involvement with your child's education. Working with parents/carers is an essential prerequisite to helping us achieve our aims as we believe that good strong partnerships, coupled with quality teaching and learning and high expectations at all times, will undoubtedly help children achieve their very best, lead to great achievements, promote good citizenship and prepare pupils well for the next stages of their lives.

We are one of East Dulwich’s newest schools, but we are also part of a Federation of schools with an established track record. 

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 (see calendar section of website) so that you can see for yourself what we have on offer.
