Harper House Primary School is a family, with every member committed to high expectations, teamwork, mutual respect, support and understanding.
We believe that knowing each child as an individual is at the heart of our success. We aim to challenge and support all learners, in an environment where safety, warmth and trust are key values. As a learning community, we aim for excellence and recognise that every member of the school can make a difference to those around them. We aim to provide learners with the firm foundations needed to underpin lifelong learning.
We want our children to be happy, have high self-esteem and develop confidence in themselves and their abilities so that they can learn to handle new situations. We want them to enjoy school, developing a questioning approach to life that will equip them for a rapidly changing world.
In addition to promoting academic excellence, we do our best to offer high quality pastoral care. Our behaviour management is based on rights and responsibilities we encourage the children to make the best possible choices, being good ‘citizens’, supporting and respecting each other. We have a range of rewards and clear procedures when they make the ‘wrong’ choices. We encourage children to take pride in everything they do, which extends to their conduct out of school. All children wear school uniform, which makes them instantly recognisable.
