Summary

The Academy has been very successful in developing the outcomes for Pupil Premium Students and the above strategies are clearly delivering.

The progress and attainment of Pupil Premium across the Academic Year 2015/16 was Outstanding.

The only strategy we will not be continuing with in 2016/17 will be the Saturday morning sports clubs. We found this did not reach the number we anticipated as many students participated in their own sports club, therefore did not attend our own (even though they were free).

 

 

 

Pupil Premium Strategy for 2016/17

Harris Academy Morden is expecting to receive approximately £250,812.50 for this Academic year for the 261 PP students (37%)

The strategies we intend to employ are focused on the academic performance and the pastoral well-being of the child.

At the Academy we have several barriers that must be overcome. Not all barriers are the same for each child but the barriers listed are the ones we feel many PP students face:

  1. Poor Primary Education standards in literacy , numeracy that hinder a child all-round education
  2. Attendance
  3. Poor attitude to school life and education
  4. Understanding what good learning routines are
  5. Lack of food
  6. Access to IT
  7. Aspiration
  8. A desire to do well (with family support) but a lack of knowledge in how to achieve success.

We have developed our PP strategy to overcome these barriers over time to ensure students can progress and be successful students. The outcomes data clearly demonstrate the strategies employed are effective.

In addition to the planned expenditure below, we feel the smaller classes in English and Maths in particular continue to be one of the best resources to improve performance overtime of all groups of students.

In 2016 /17 the Academy will complete a student survey with PP and H&PP students to ensure additional barriers are identified (if any) and how best we can respond to them to support students.
