Harris Primary Academy Philip Lane

Academy Specialism


Academy Description

Harris Primary Academy Philip Lane opened in September 2012 in the heart of Tottenham. If you visit, you will find a happy, caring and supportive Academy that is raising standards and expectations.

In work and in play, Harris primary students are encouraged towards traditional values: good manners and behaviour, enthusiasm for learning, and recognising right from wrong. Our aim is that, whatever a child’s background or starting point, by the time they move on to secondary school from the Academy they will have developed the academic skills, social skills, confidence and drive that they need in order to succeed.

Academy Ethos

At Philip Lane our aims and values underpin our curriculum, teaching and learning. We revisit and reflect on these in our day to day work with the pupils and wider community. Our aims and values are strongly reflected in our Culture for Learning Policy and our expectations of  all staff and pupils.

Our Values:

  • We value the way in which all children are unique, and our curriculum promotes respect for the views of each individual, as well as for people of all cultures.
  • We value tolerance, respect and promote fair play in all we do
  • We value a working partnership with parents  and families to support each pupil’s  learning, progress and well-being
  • We value the spiritual and moral development of each pupil, as well as their intellectual and physical growth.
  • We value the importance of each person in our community. We organise our curriculum so that we promote co-operation and understanding between all members of our community.
  • We value our environment and we aim through our curriculum to teach respect for our world, and how we should care for it.
