At Harris Primary Academy Haling Park we are committed to promoting the progress and attainment of all our pupils, whatever their backgrounds.
The Pupil Premium Grant
The Pupil Premium is part of our overall budget that we receive annually. We are required to account specifically about how we use this fund. It is allocated based on the number of children meeting a national criteria based on the Ever 6 Measure. That includes the total number of:
- Pupils eligible for fee school meals – within the last 6 years
- Children looked after
- Service children
We use our funding to precisely target specific teaching and learning programmes or related activities. All our pedagogy and practice (including use of some commercial programmes) is research based with strong evidence of having impact in schools nationally or internationally.
We are committed to ensuring that all our pupils progress very well and access high quality teaching and provision - every day. We carefully track the progress of all children, including our disadvantaged pupils in every class. Tracking also enables us to evaluate the impact of our teaching and intervention programmes so we can adjust provision and tailor support. That way, we can make sure we are having the desired impact on pupils’ learning and progress.
