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.

Student Welfare

The Academy has a range of policies and procedures in place that ensure the welfare of all of our students. Several of these policies set out expectations about behaviour. This includes good learning behaviour around the Academy and in lessons as well as rules about how you communicate and behave appropriately towards other students and staff. All this means everyone feels safe and can learn.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the welfare of your son or daughter, please in the first instance contact his or her form tutor. If you would like to talk to somebody else, please contact the relevant Faculty Director:

Blue Faculty:     Mr Holden:    holdeng@harrismerton.org.uk       020 8623 1000

Green Faculty:  Ms Spirydon:    spirydonc@harrismerton.org.uk         020 8623 1000

Red Faculty:      Ms Fisher:      fisherh@harrismerton.org.uk         020 8623 1000

Yellow Faculty:  Mrs Sami:      samiz@harrismerton.org.uk           020 8623 1000


Attendance

Excellent attendance is the expectation at Harris Academy Merton. The expectation is that students attend every day unless they are unwell, in which case parents or carers are expected to contact the Academy before 9.00 am on each morning of absence.

Medical Appointments

Whenever possible, the Academy asks that medical appointments be made out of school hours. If an in-hours appointment is unavoidable, proof of the appointment will be required (appointment card/letter).

Punctuality

Being punctual to school is just as important as attending every day. We work hard to ensure that all students arrive on time, and we make it very clear to students that there are consequences if they fail to meet this expectation. Parent/carers should be aware that students will accumulate late marks, not just for arriving late at the Academy in the morning, but also being late for lesson registration. Students MUST be through the gate by 8.25am to avoid receiving a late detention.

Persistent Absence

Read the Government's guidance on Persistent Absence (PA) and about the decision to class students with 15% or greater absence as a PA student. The Government is currently considering moving this threshold to 10%.

To report an absence, please contact Mrs J Braine, our Attendance Officer 0208 623 1009
