Pupil Premium Spend

Pupil Premium Report 2016/17 December 2016

The government gives schools extra funding for students who are classified as Pupil Premium.  As a group, such students nationally perform less well than their non-pupil premium peers due to a variety of barriers to their learning.  These can include a lack of cultural capital, low literacy/numeracy, low confidence and aspirations, disruptive home/community life, lack of social skills, financial deprivation, and safeguarding issues.  At Harris Academy Greenwich, we aim to work with teachers, students and their families to ensure that barriers to learning can be overcome.

36% of pupils are currently eligible for Free School Meals (December 8th 2016).  The Pupil Premium funding includes all pupils who have been eligible for free school meals in the last 6 years. This is known as the ‘Ever 6’ measure.  Currently, 390 pupils are eligible for free school meals in years 7-11, with 546 on the ‘Ever 6’ measure (50.5%). The difference in the figures between FSM and Pupil Premium figures suggests that many of our families are subject to periodic poverty or do not always claim the Free School Meals to which they are entitled.

We measure the impact of our pupil premium spend primarily through the progress data, as provided by a document called Raise Online each year.  It is the culmination of all our strategies that we measure, not necessarily each individual intervention.  At HAGR we call our strategy a ‘game of inches’ where interventions add together to have an extraordinary impact on the results and life chances of our most disadvantaged students.
