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.

Central Office


















The nursery at Harris Primary Academy Croydon is an Early Years provision with warm and welcoming staff. Our staff are a dedicated team of individuals who work together in a professional manner to promote a wide and varied Early Years Provision.

Our highly qualified and experienced staff offer the children learning through play based experiences, under the areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. This contributes to the development of the ‘whole child’ as our aim is to enable all our children to have fun and foster a love for learning.  We welcome your involvement in your child’s learning and development and hold regular open mornings so you can share with their learning journals with your child and talk to staff.

At Harris Primary Croydon, we are proud of the unique provision we are able to offer our families.  All 3 year old children are entitled to 15 hours of free child care – equivalent to 5 x 3 hour sessions each week, which in most other schools is offered as a morning or afternoon session.  However, we appreciate families would benefit from greater flexibility in choosing when these sessions are taken. We are currently only able to offer morning sessions.

Harris Primary Croydon believe that diversity is a strength, which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn and visit us. We are committed to ensuring equality of opportunities for all and we will endeavor to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which people feel free to participate fully in nursery life, regardless of their race or gender.

Our approach to learning embodies a positive attitude to life and learning as they prepare to start their journey through school life. We aspire to encourage our children to feel equipped to play an active role in life as they grow and flourish in our care.

We have allocated places for Nursery in September 2023. If you wish to add you child's name to the waiting list, please complete apply electronically by clicking here.
