Equalities & Additional Intervention

We believe that all students should be equally valued at our Academy. We will strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination, and to develop an environment where all children can flourish and feel safe. We have a range of agreed policies.

Harris Academy Purley is committed to inclusion and part of the Academy’s strategic planning involves developing cultures, policies and practices that include all learners. We aim to engender a sense of community and belonging, and to offer new opportunities to learners who may have experienced previous difficulties. This does not mean that we will treat all learners in the same way, but that we will respond to learners in ways that take in to account their varied life experiences and needs.

We believe that educational inclusion is about equal opportunities for all learners, whatever their age, gender, demographic group, ethnicity, additional need, attainment and background. We pay particular attention to the provision for and the achievement of different groups of learners:

  • Boys or Girls
  • Students from families that are financially disadvantaged (PP - Pupil Premium)
  • Students who arrive with below nationally expected ability in any area (LAPs)
  • Students from minority faiths, ethnicities, travellers, asylum seekers, refugees
  • Students who have English as an additional language (EAL)
  • Students who have Special Educational Needs or a Disability (SEND)
  • Students who are Most Able (MA)
  • Students who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender (LGBT)
  • Students who are Looked After Children (LAC)
  • Young carers, sick children, children from families under stress

 

Pupil Premium Report 2015 - 2016

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) in September 2011 with the purpose of increasing attainment and aspiration for students from disadvantaged backgrounds, specifically;

  • To increase social mobility
  • To enable more students to go to the top universities
  • To reduce the attainment gap

Harris Academy Purley receives a Pupil Premium Grant for each child who is entitled to receive Free School Meals or who has been entitled over the last six years, and for Looked After Children.  The Academy is allowed to allocate the funding as they see fit in order to meet the aims above and are held accountable for the impact of this funding.

How the Academy spends the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) to maximise achievement

  • Ring-fencing funding in order to ensure that the funding impacts the targeted students
  • Drawing on research evidence (such as the Sutton Trust toolkit) and own evidence
  • Understanding the importance of ensuring that all day-to-day teaching meets the needs of each student
  • Designing additional and targeted interventions for key groups of students
  • Deploying highly trained Teaching Assistants who understand their role in helping students
  • Having a Designated Senior Leader who has a clear overview of spending and interventions
  • Ensuring that subject teachers know which students are eligible for the PPG so that they can take responsibility for accelerating their progress
