Learning at Harris Primary Academy Coleraine Park is exciting, engaging and relevant. It prepares children for the world we live in now and for our future. In September 2019 we introduced a brand new curriculum which links learning to a theme. Each half term there is a whole-school theme, which is then divided into year group specific aspects, and most subjects are taught through the theme where possible.
Our curriculum has been written to be in line with the new national curriculum for England. As half termly units are completed they will be published on our website.
There are daily lessons in English (Reading, Writing, Phonics, Spelling and Grammar) and Mathematics for children of all ages. This helps to make sure that they become confident readers, writers and mathematicians in the earliest years of their education.
Children also learn science, history, geography, RE, PE, art, design technology, drama, dance and music. They study Personal, Social and Citizenship education and begin learning a modern foreign language in Year 3. PE is taught by specialist teachers which ensures children reach the very highest standards possible in all subjects.
Creativity, fun and self-expression are important aspects of Academy life and, across every subject, we make sure there is time and space for children to develop their imagination and their thinking skills.
Our curriculum is in line with our duties as they relate to the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014, ensuring that our curriculum is accessible to those with special educational needs and/or disabilities.
