Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Our Literacy Specialism

We chose literacy as our specialism because we believe that effective reading, writing and communication underpin all learning.

An emphasis on developing reading and writing fluency is our focus in Years 3 and 4. For those children who need help with their reading, additional bespoke phonics teaching – both individual and in groups – is available to accelerate their progress.

By Years 5 and 6 the teaching emphasis is on high-level comprehension and writing skills so that children can engage with more complex texts across the curriculum.

All children are encouraged to read for pleasure and take books home.
