Academy Values

HAPU Mission and Vision

HAPU is an outstanding, vibrant, mixed school for students aged 11- 19 with specialisms in enterprise and sport.  We are ambitious to build on the outstanding success of the Academy thus far, already a well-established centre of academic, artistic, sporting and technological excellence.  We teach students from diverse backgrounds, cultures and abilities and enable them to make exceptional progress both academically and in their wider personal development.

Our passion and expectation is that each and every student who joins Harris Academy Purley achieves and exceeds their ‘potential’.  We want our students to be inspired and engaged in their learning, developing strong ambition and resilience to succeed.  In all aspects of school life we emphasise the traditional values of respect, integrity and self-discipline.  These underpin our entire philosophy. 

Our students join us for a seven year journey, with the expectation that they will continue their education into our Sixth Form. 

 

HAPU Values

The foundation upon which everything we do is based, are our eight core values:

Learning

Achievement

Excellence

HAPU Mission: “Student learning & achievement is at our heart, aspiring for excellence and resilience in every student, built on a celebration of individual diversity with collective unity, founded on integrity and respect.”

Resilience

Unity

Diversity

Integrity

Respect

 

HAPU: Learning • Excellence • Unity • Integrity

Learning and Achievement: This is our core business – students learning and leading to outstanding achievement.  We expect students to learn in every lesson and to make progress from whatever their starting point may be. 

Excellence & Resilience: We aim for students to attain excellence in all aspects of their school life.  We want students to achieve the very highest standards academically in the creative & performing arts; technology and in the sporting arena.  For students to reach the very highest standards they must develop resilience.  Resilience means encountering challenges and learning to persevere and bounce back when they fail.  To ensure we develop this resilience means we must ensure students are genuinely challenged in all aspects of school life.

Unity & Diversity: HAPU is a very diverse academy.  75% of our students come from an ethnic group other than White British.  Additionally we have a wide range of students from different social, religious and financial backgrounds.  We aspire for students to learn and enjoy what real unity is and that they make a meaningful contribution to the academy and external community unity – whether it be their Tutor group, House, year, whole school or external community. In contrast to this desire for unity, we also seek to see and encourage genuine diversity.  We value the individual and respect the unique talents and approaches that they bring to the Academy. 

Integrity and Respect:  These two values underpin our entire philosophy.  Integrity means ‘doing the right thing, even when someone isn’t looking’.  A school community motivated by integrity and embodying a true understanding of respect and care for others is a successful school.
