I loved this idea from the mfl dept in last week. It's a vocabulary game in which students get different points for vocab learnt on different weeks. Great to recycle language. I'm using it to revise for next assessment. https://t.co/h7lgoIINZN

Pupil Premium Spend

Harris Academy Greenwich Pupil Premium Spend

Review of Spending and Impact 2017-18

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, 445 of our students are currently (as of September 2018) 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 outlines the expenditure in the 2017-2018 academic year, followed by a review of Pupil Premium progress in the GCSEs and an outline of the key priorities of this coming academic year.

Allocation per child in 2018-19

  • £935 per child in years 7 to 11
