Limiting class sizes, keeping children in small, consistent groups and preventing mixing will allow more children to return to school in a phased way that reduces risk. https://t.co/E9lC6gPxY4 https://t.co/XqvvzSMsNZ

A broad and balanced curriculum

The curriculum at key stage 3 is neither narrowed nor curtailed with every student studying the full national curriculum range of subjects until the end of year 9; that is English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, MFL, DT, Art, Music, PE, Citizenship (as part of PSHE) and Computing.

All students also study Religious Education and have lessons in healthy relationships and sex education (as part of PSHE.)

In Key Stage 4, all students study the core subjects of English, Maths and Science and are offered with equal access the foundation subjects of Computing, PE and Citizenship as well as many other options. Students at key stage 4 are also offered healthy relationships and sex education and on an equal access basis, Religious Education.

Students commence GCSE subjects in year 10. Options offered in Key Stage 4 take account of the local context and provide the opportunity to study a wide range of academic, vocational, expressive, creative and technology subjects including art, design and technology, humanities and modern foreign languages.

The academy’s first GCSE cohort will take their exams in 2022. Over 90% of this cohort is likely to attempt the full EBacc suite of subjects.

In KS5, the academy offer forms part of a coherent offer provided jointly by three sixth forms in the area. The academy specialises in Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths ‘A’ levels. Economics, Psychology and Physical Education A levels are also offered to provide a full choice combination. A small number of students are shared with Harris Academy Chafford Hundred and Harris Academy Ockendon.

Our educational experience consists of our 4 Riverside Curricula which work together to provide The Harris Academy Riverside education:

  • The traditional curriculum - the subject lessons (curriculum overview)
  • The scholarship curriculum - which substantially supports the traditional curriculum
  • The wider curriculum - which provides valuable experiences and activities in order to contribute to a student's wider development
  • The pastoral curriculum - which teaches students behaviours for success

Any understanding of The Harris Riverside Educational experience must include an understanding of each of these curricula and how they work together.
