Student Welfare

From the moment they arrive here at the beginning of September, we want our Year 7 students to feel welcome, safe and cared for. By feeling settled early on they can begin to grasp all that we have to offer; academic, social and extra-curricular.

In their first week here, every Year 7 is given a tutor who coaches them, sets goals with them and makes sure they settle in well. Class sizes are kept as small as possible. We also have a culture of mutual respect between students and staff – and zero tolerance of bullying in any form.

Through our House system, we encourage friendship and healthy competition. Students are placed into a tutor group which belongs to one of our four Houses. Each House contains tutor groups from all year groups. By putting students into these smaller communities, they feel a greater sense of belonging.

We run all manner of inter-House competitions and students are encouraged to win points for their House through good attendance and behaviour. We want parents to feel involved and informed about their child’s progress. This is why we send reports home every six weeks and regularly welcome parents to come and meet with their child’s teachers

The Academy has a range of policies and procedures in place that ensure the welfare of all of our students. Several of these policies set out expectations about good behaviour.  This means everyone feels safe and can learn. This includes good learning behaviour around the Academy and in lessons and also expectations about how to communicate and behave appropriately towards other students and staff.

Excellent attendance is the expectation at Harris Academy Purley. The expectation is that students attend every day unless they are unwell, in which case parents or carers are expected to contact the Academy before 9am on each morning of absence.

To report a Harris Academy Purley student absent, you can email us at the address below or call our main telephone number and choose option 1 (Attendance) from the automated answering system.
