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.


Primary Academy Chafford Hundred is a three form entry Academy located in the heart of Chafford Hundred, which is a modern development bordering Lakeside and Thurrock, serving a vibrant and diverse community. Chafford Hundred has good links to central London as well as being accessible from Kent and Essex.  

We are proud that our Academy benefits from a modern, well equipped school building with exciting playground and sports facilities. We have a modern Nursery building, which provides education for 52 pupils on a part time basis. 

Our vision is to give every child coming into the Academy an education they enjoy, which both

inspires and prepares them for academic and personal success now and in the future.  All the staff and Governors share this vision and work together to make sure this becomes a reality.

Our staff team are all committed to ensuring every child can enjoy and excel in their learning, confidence and creativity.  We celebrate all our children’s achievements from both in school and outside school activities. We also offer an excellent after school and breakfast club, ensuring we stay open from 7.45 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. each day.

We work closely with our colleagues in other Harris Primary Academies and Free Schools and welcome the additional opportunities this provides. We work closely with our sister academy, Harris Primary Academy Mayflower, working under one Executive Principal to share ideas, successes and resources in order to develop outstanding primary education in Chafford Hundred.  Our shared belief is that children thrive when they feel consistently happy and safe at school and our commitment to excellence is encapsulated in our vision statement: "Excellence, Every child, Every day."

Our Core values of: Teamwork, Resilience, Respect and Responsibility, underpin everything that happens at Harris Primary Academy Chafford Hundred. They are our foundations and we have a clear expectation that all adults as well as children and staff model and respect these values both inside and outside the academy.

The achievements of our children come about because of the hard work, commitment and professionalism of all of the staff and governors here and the support of parents, with whom we have forged close partnership links. We provide many opportunities for our parents and the local community to share in the pupils learning and we look forward to welcoming you into our academy.


We look forward to welcoming you to our Academy.
