Values and Ethos

We have shared values that shape every aspect of life at Harris Academy Peckham. On this page we explain what we mean by LEAP (Leadership, Enquiry, Aspiration and Perseverance).


Leadership

IMG 141Understanding that to fulfill potential, taking ownership of learning is crucial.

Being able to improve independent and collaborative skills to become a fully-rounded leader by demonstrating tolerance and empathy towards others.

Developing the courage and confidence to lead with confidence and conviction, motivating and supporting others with compassion.

Communicating with fluency, confidence and accuracy, understanding how to alter words and tone as suitable to audience and purpose in a mature and sophisticated manner.

Understanding the importance of being a positive role model to others and an effective compassionate citizen in our academy community and beyond.


Enquiry

IMG 021Acquiring and maintaining a curious approach to learning, dedicating oneself to the discovery of further depths of knowledge so that profound understanding and application can occur.

Questioning the meaning of each new chapter of learning to fully immerse in new information, gaining ownership through investigation, analysis and study.

Applying independent and collaborative skills to interrogate new learning to master new concepts and skills.


Aspiration

Cultivating a will to excel across all facets of academy life: academic, personal and interpersonal.

Committing to the self-belief and hard work required to achieve goals, understanding that growth mindset and reflection are needed to exceed targets, taking pride in one’s own and others’ accomplishments.

Meeting the challenges delivered in class and setting one’s own high level challenges to further extend learning and personal development.

Fostering a confidence in one’s own attributes and in one’s peers to be able to celebrate and inspire further the skills and talents needed to excel as an individual and as a collective.


Perseverance

Maintaining the focus and positive mindset needed to excel in all aspects of academy life, demonstrating a mature dedication to fulfilling one’s personal best and fostering a determination to learn from mistakes to strengthen resolve to succeed.

Understanding that there are no excuses, but to empower oneself through building strength through learning and reflection.

Fostering the ability to be a leader of one’s own learning.
