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.

The Chafford Ten

At Harris Academy Chafford Hundred we recognise the core purpose of schools is learning and teaching.  As a staff we believe that student achievement is the result of the quality of teaching and learning. We understand that student achievement and the length of time students stay in education affects their life chances and in particular the longer students stay in education the higher their lifetime salary, the better their health and the longer they live. Improving the quality of teaching and learning is at the heart of everything that we do.

Expectations of lessons at the Academy have been developed by teaching staff and are outlined as our Chafford 10. These expectations form the basis of lesson planning and evaluation and are the cornerstone of learning and teaching at the Academy.

Chafford 10: 

Active engagement

Students are focused on their learning and are displaying qualities such as curiosity, questioning, applying.

Clear on purpose

Students are clear about what they are doing, why they are doing it and how it fits in with what they have learned and are to learn.

Informed by data and evidence

Students know how they are performing, where their strengths and weaknesses lie and the requirements of the course / specification.

Challenge though learning tension

Students are challenged to think because the work is hard enough to stretch them but there is a clear chance of success. 

Reflect, question and evaluate

Students should have the opportunity to display the skills of reflection, evaluation and questioning both about what they are learning and how they are learning it.

Collaborate

Learning is socially constructed and is most powerful when students are working with each other and the member of staff in partnership.

Build independence and ownership of own learning and progress

Students are able to manage their own learning, they use the member of staff as opposed to rely on them, they display the relevant aspects of the 5R’s and know what to do when they don’t know what to do.

Enthusiasm and personalisation

Students display in enthusiasm for and in their learning and the experience they have allows them to make progress and develop as an individual.

Demonstrating understanding and progress

Students are given the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learnt and the progress they are making in the lesson.

Effective processing of information

Students can analyse, apply and synthesise information from a range of sources.
