Here's my top tip on sharing books with children. It's very, very simple. READ TO THEM EVERY DAY! Always make time for storytime. Never, ever skip it. Just a few minutes a day can change their lives forever! (Art )

Welcome from the Head of Academy

Welcome to Harris Primary Academy Beckenham Green. We believe that every child is unique and that each deserves the opportunity to be happy, feel valued and experience success.

As a small academy, with a single form in each year group, we aim to give our pupils a balanced, exciting and truly enjoyable education that prepares them for success in secondary school and beyond. Our children are at the heart of everything we do, we all believe HPABG is their school and we put them at the centre of every decision we make.

Located in the heart of Beckenham, we are part of the Harris Federation which runs five other successful primary academies in Bromley and more than 40 academies in total in and around London. We benefit from being part of this thriving community of schools.

We have high expectations of ourselves, our children and the families who support them. These high expectations mean that we are always striving to improve on our previous best. We value the qualities of hard work and perseverance as much as we do excellent outcomes. We are looking for every child to achieve their personal best.

The aim of all our teachers, support staff and leaders is to give every pupil an education they enjoy and which prepares them for academic success and confident, happy lives.

We have 30 places available in Reception. Please do come along to meet us if you are interested in a place – you can contact us through the school office to arrange a guided visit. All of the staff here look forward to meeting you.

Emma Catley

Head of Academy
