Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is allocated to the school for children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM), or who have been eligible for free school meals in the last six years. It is also allocated to the school for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months or adopted from care.

The main aims of pupil premium are to:

Increase social mobility

  • Enable more pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to access the best education

  • Reduce the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils.

Harris Primary School will receive a total of £30,200 for 2016-17.

This funding will be used in the following ways:

Impact of Pupil Premium Funding in our school.

In 2015 Rt Hon David Laws MP, Minister of State for Schools, wrote and asked us to support other schools in helping disadvantaged pupils.

“Your school’s results for disadvantaged pupils in recent years show that you have expertise in making a difference with this too-often underperforming group. This clearly demonstrates that the future success of your pupils is very important to you and you share my determination to give our most disadvantaged children a better start in life.”

The percentage of KS2 pupils attaining greater than the expected standard in reading, writing and maths in 2016 was 16%.

In 2016, There were six pupils in the category of Pupil Premium in Year 6. Based on teacher assessment, four out of six pupils achieved at least expected standard in reading, writing and maths. Average scaled test scores were lower for reading, writing and maths than non-pupil premium pupils by average of 7 points. Two of these pupils had Special Educational Needs and one joined the school in Year 6.
