The Harris Academy Rainham, Pupils Premium Statement and Spending Review
The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011. This grant which is additional to the main Academy funding, is seen by the government as the best way to address the national inequalities between students eligible for free school meals, or have been within the last 6 years, (PP) and Looked after Children (LAC) and other students. This grant will ensure that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the students who need it most. The pupil premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable in our budget. Academies can decide how the pupil premium money is spent as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual students within their responsibility.
At Harris Academy Rainham we support all of our students. We do this by providing high quality classroom teaching supplemented by interventions to support vulnerable learners as well as additional support to enable our high ability students to achieve high academic standards. All leaders in this Academy including the Governors are committed to ensuring the Pupil Premium funding is targeted to provide the best possible outcomes to students that may be at a disadvantage.
