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.

Celebrating Achievements and Behaviour

In order for students to reach high standards as well as enjoy their education, a calm, purposeful environment is essential. This is the case both inside and outside the classroom. Students will be expected to follow the code of conduct and safety rules which are summarised in the student planners. An Academy ethos of encouragement is central to the promotion of positive learning behaviour and our Academy structure for recognising achievement. Sanctions are used to respond to poor learning behaviour, these are applied consistently, giving students opportunities to de-escalate sanctions at each stage.


Celebrating Achievements

The following are recorded on BromCom and reported to parents/carers:

  • Praise for good work
  • Faculty Merits

They are also cumulative and can lead to the following awards which will be presented at termly celebration assemblies:

  • Excellent Results
  • Prizes for Excellence
  • Principal’s Commendations


Additionally there are opportunities to be invited to the following:

  • Academy Awards Evenings

Rewards are also given to individual faculties who achieve outstanding results in attendance, behaviour and academic studies. Staff members are rewarded through peer and student nominations by demonstrating excellence in a number of areas related to teaching and learning and through the promotion of the key principals of CORE.

Love of Learning, CORE and Magnificent Manners reward cards are given out weekly to students by the Faculty Director’s, in assembly time.  Students achieve these by demonstrating good behaviour and active engagement in all things learning, inside and outside of the classroom. Student are nominated by their teachers for this.
