Harris Primary Shortlands Curriculum Intent

At its heart, our curriculum aims to foster and develop children who are confident, interested and well-rounded. Confident in themselves as individuals, and in their abilities as resilient learners. Interested in the world around them, and able to question the things that they see. Well-rounded, in that they have been exposed and introduced to a curriculum that has breadth and depth, and can make links and connections with the world around them. Able to thrive in academic learning but also able to engage in extra curricular activities, which foster a love of learning. Our core values Aspire, Believe and Flourish run throughout this.

Ensuring Equality and Inclusion at Harris Primary Academy Shortlands

Harris Primary Academy Shortlands welcomes all children and values them as individuals, treating them equally and with respect. We believe that all children have the right to have their own needs incorporated into their curriculum in order to achieve success through the following approaches;

  • Provide an accessible environment, which is secure and safe, so that all our children can flourish.

  • We believe that all teachers are teachers of children with special educational needs and it is therefore a whole school responsibility to ensure that these children’s needs are addressed.

  • Through staff working together as a team, and in partnership with pupils and their parents and carers, we strive to ensure that our aims are met.

  • Ensure all staff are aware of anti-discriminatory practice, promoting and valuing equality and diversity.

  • Promote early identification of children with additional needs to ensure interventions are in place to address their needs.

  • Monitor the progress of all our children to ensure they are meeting their full potential.

  • Work with all external agencies and organisations

  • To build relationships with other schools within our community including specialist and other Harris Federation schools.

  • We ensure that our curriculum is fully inclusive and will not discriminate against the protected characteristics: age, disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation.  

  • Our inclusive teaching approach ensures that all children can access the learning using resources and strategies that they may need, including modified language, additional support or resource.

  • Follow the guidance in the SEN Code of Practice, Equalities Act 2010 and The Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014
