Pupil Premium

Premium Expenditure 2017 to 2018


The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and their peers. It is hoped that effective use of this funding will help remove the attainment gap between the groups of children.

Pupil Premium is allocated to schools based on the number of children meeting a national criteria based on the Ever 6 Measure. This includes the total number of:

  • Pupils eligible for Free School Meals – within the last 6 years
  • Looked after children


Funding and Accountability

Pupil Premium funding comes directly to the Academy and is allocated for every child who is in receipt of Free School Meals. The Head of Academy decides where to allocate the funds, as they are best placed to assess what additional provisions may benefit their pupils. They are held accountable for their decisions.

Guiding principles for the allocation of resources at Harris Primary Academy Purley Way 

  • Teaching and learning opportunities should meet the needs of all pupils
  • The raising of attainment for children eligible for FSM will be a priority
  • Pupil premium funding may also be used to support any pupil or group of pupils the academy has identified as being in need of intervention and support
  • Use of pupil level data will help identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Not all children who receive free school meals will be supported at the same time
  • Planning for the year has been adapted to ensure that high expectations for all children are in place, with a focus on high standards of achievement in Maths, reading and writing
