Our Learning Ethos
Our teachers and leaders are ambitious for the children and families of Harris Primary Academy Coleraine Park.
We have high expectations for behaviour and learning and therefore high expectations of outcomes for children.
We want to raise standards and expectations by making sure that, whatever a child’s background or starting point is, they finish Year 6 with the academic skills, social skills and knowledge necessary to succeed.
This is brought about by having systems and processes that ensure good behaviour; engaging and rigorous teaching; learning and assessment combined with detailed monitoring of achievement and personalised target setting.
Teachers know exactly where each child is in terms of achievement and have stretching targets for them. Whenever a child needs extra support, we plan work for them in small groups or on a one-to-one basis to give them the additional tuition they require.
Children with identified Special Educational Need or disability will be assessed to be included on the Special Educational Needs register. Provision for these children is then mapped to ensure that they are able to access the full range of curriculum opportunities to progress and succeed.
Our aim is that each of our students should be able to hit the ground running when they begin secondary school.
