Harris Primary Academy Chafford Hundred is a three form entry Academy located in the heart of Chafford Hundred, which is a modern development bordering Lakeside, serving a vibrant and diverse community. Chafford Hundred has good links to central London as well as being accessible from Kent and Essex.
We are proud that our Academy benefits from a modern, well equipped school building with exciting playground and sports facilities. We have a modern Nursery building which provides education for 52 pupils on a part time basis.
Our vision is “Excellence. Every Child. Every Day.” and our staff, governors, pupils and parents all live by the core values of teamwork, respect, responsibility and resilience, which underpin our vision and work together.
Our staff team are all committed to ensuring every child can enjoy and excel in their learning, confidence and creativity. We celebrate all our children’s achievements from both in school and outside school activities. We also offer an excellent after school and breakfast club, ensuring we stay open from 7.45 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. each day.
We work closely with our colleagues in other Harris Primary Academies and our staff enjoy the CPD opportunities that working with the highest performing multi-academy trust in the country provides. All staff attend the annual Harris Federation conference which has been held at the Excel Centre, in London, for the past two years. Our teachers and support staff receive a wide and diverse range of training and development through the programmes offered through the central Harris federation team and the Harris Teaching School, as well as through working closely in partnership with other outstanding academies.
The achievements of our children come about because of the hard work, commitment and professionalism of all of the staff and governors here and the support of parents, with whom we have forged close partnership links. Our staff work hard and we like to retain them and as such are constantly striving to help them find improved avenues to achieve work life balance. In recent years we have set up marking workshops and refined the marking policy, as well as creating time for staff to plan in year group teams to maximize the collective power when planning and assessing.
We welcome potential staff at any stage of their career, and would ask that anyone thinking of applying for a role with us, visits the academy first.
