At Harris Primary Academy Beckenham we are committed to promoting the progress and attainment of all our pupils, whatever their backgrounds. We commit to the Harris Federation’s equality and diversity statement which can be seen here.
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 free school meals – within the last 6 years
- Looked after children
We use our funding to precisely target specific teaching and learning programmes or related activities.
We are committed to ensuring that all our pupils progress well and access high quality teaching and provision - every day. We carefully track the progress of all children including children from disadvantaged backgrounds though provision maps and at pupil progress meetings every half term. 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.
Programmes are used across our Early Years, KS1 & KS2 to help identified children who need support to accelerate progress in their mathematics, reading, writing, speaking and listening.
