Pupil Premium Spend

Pupil Premium Spend

Pupil Premium Report 2017/18 – September 15, 2017

The government provides extra funding to schools for students qualifying for the ‘pupil premium’. National statistics indicate that historically, these students do not perform as well as others due to a variety of barriers to learning.

At Harris Academy Greenwich, 43% of our students are currently (as of September 2017) eligible for the pupil premium.

We measure the impact of our pupil premium spend primarily through progress data, collected through various assessments throughout the year.  It is the culmination of all our strategies that we measure, not necessarily each individual intervention.  At Harris Academy, 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.

The table, below, shows how we allocated our funding for the last academic year and how we have forecast the spending for the current academic year. Due to our commitment to supporting those students who need it most, and the rising cost of staffing and resources, our initiatives cost £16,000 more than the funding we received for 2016/17.

Income for 2016/17 was £456,648

£477,200 is estimated allocation for 2017/18
