Aims/Learning Ethos

A vision for every teacher, every student and every leader to be outstanding – the expectation is clear, we foster a culture of academic excellence, ambition and aspiration. All students  yet in particular our most vulnerable are nurtured and cared for in a holistic way.

The Harris Academy South Norwood is a vibrant Business and Enterprise Academy at the heart of the community in South Norwood. There is a culture of high expectations for all students, which underpins every development in the Academy. Harris Academy South Norwood has developed flexible and creative approaches to teaching and learning that raises standards for all.

A positive ethos has been embedded around the focus on Business and Enterprise through which we equip all students with the best possible education, ensuring they are fully prepared to succeed in their chosen careers as constructive citizens of the wider society in which they will live and work. We have 3 “golden rules” for all students AND staff: “I am here to learn”; “I have a positive attitude” and “I will make it happen”.

Our 6th form has grown to be the largest in the Federation, from 43 students way back in 2007 to 380 in 2013. We are full in all other year groups and we believe this is a testament to the reputation and continued success of the Academy.

Using the specialism of Business and Enterprise six core principles have been established that are recognised across the Academy as promoting enterprising learning. Students and staff develop the meanings of these principles throughout the year, during tutor time, assemblies, student councils and implementation of our policies.

These principles are also be used as part of the self evaluation and review process.

  • Learning First
  • High Aspirations
  • Business Environment
  • Celebrate Success
  • Growing confidence
  • Spirit of Enterprise

An Academy ethos of encouragement is central to the promotion of good learning. Rewards are one of the means of achieving this, they have a motivational role in helping students to realise that good behaviour and high achievement is valued. The Academy has wide range of ways to ensure that all student achievements are recognised regularly and shared with parents/carers. As well as systems for accumulating Academy Merits there are termly Rewards evenings and Celebrations Assemblies within Hubs, as well as an array of other awards events during the year which recognising a range of achievement.

All this leads inevitably to the following Mission Statement:

“Achieving excellence through Enterprise”
