Harris Primary Academy Mayflower rated by Ofsted as 'Outstanding' across all areas

Reassurance Needed!

Dear Parents and Friends of Mayflower

We thought it would be timely to update you all on where we are with regard to the building developments for our new site and arrangements for the coming year.

Recently in the press there was some localised misreporting about the future of Harris Primary Academy Mayflower, which caused some of you distress. We are sorry about this, but can happily reassure you that the future of Mayflower has never been in doubt and this report was supposed to refer to the places allocated for the new secondary free school, which is a different project entirely.

Our plans were given approval for the new site at Thurrock Council last month. There were some concerns raised about traffic on Mayflower Road, once our school is full, however the footpath connecting our site to Mill Lane, the proposed bus service to Grays and West Thurrock and our proposed staggered start time of 8.35 a.m. and finish time of 3.00 p.m. reassured the planning committee, who gave the plans their approval.

We are working with the Harris Federation on plans for moving to our new site ahead of the coming academic year. We will be offering subsidised wrap around care (breakfast and after school) to ensure the staggered times for working parents do not present problems. We are reviewing temporary building plans for the first year and then will be in the brand new building (See the new building section of the “Our Academy” tab on our website) at some point in the summer of 2016.  

Work on the new building has begun with the site being totally cleared and prepared ahead of foundation and footing work. It is going to be an exciting time as Harris Primary Academy Mayflower moves to its new location in September and we start to feel more independent from our sister academy who has supported us so well this year.

It has been great to keep you all updated at our fortnightly coffee mornings but we know that many of you are using the Gateway app, which we do not contribute to, as a way of finding out more information. By writing to you via email and our website, we hope we can reassure you all and let you know that Harris Primary Academy Mayflower is not only a fantastic place to learn, but is very much here to stay!


Mr Britt (Executive Principal), Mrs Chapman (Principal) and Ms Hanley (Vice Principal)
