Pupil Premium Review and Impact Statement

Pupil Premium Review and Impact Statement

Academic Year September 2018/August 2019



Quintin Kynaston (QK) after receiving an Ofsted judgement of Grade 4 in January 2017 became Harris Academy St John’s Wood in September 2017.  After one year the following specific challenges to the Pupil Premium (PP) students at HASJW are:


  1. Roughly 65% to 70% of pupils are Pupil Premium.  A third of each cohort approximately although the younger year groups have far less are High Attaining PP (HAPP) the most difficult group nationally to show progress.
  2. On entry in Year 7 Reading out of Reading, Writing and Maths students find the hardest and we come 21/23 for Key Stage 2 Reading scores across the Federation.  Hence the focus this year on Reading.
  3. About 80% of our total cohort are EAL with 20% of the total at the weakest grade 1 or 2.  Literacy (Reading) is the biggest challenge for PP students and EAL make it even more difficult.
  4. With a very diverse and international intake we suspect more like 80% of our pupils not 65% to 70% are PP so our funding is spread more thinly.
  5. We offered a free ICT cause for parents so they could help their children with their homework more for Years 7, 8 and 9.  Only ten parents in total would engage with the programme.  Parent engagement and hence support for homework and reading at how is poor.
  6. Many more students should have an EHCP for their SEN need but again parents do not apply or fully understand they system to truly get what is rightfully theirs.
  7. Our intake lower down the academy are more challenging, deprived and weaker academically consistent with schools that have received a grade 4 Ofsted.


    All challenges have been recognised and of course with determination and dedication we will insure they very best of destinations are reached for all our students mostly and importantly the PP pupils.


    Under QK the Progress 8 figure achieved for PP pupils was approximately -0.2 with HAPP achieving -0.5.  Summer 2018 saw a huge improvement with Progress 8 PP achieving 0.61 so nearly a whole grade improvement across the eight subjects.  At the same time HAPP Progress 8 figure was 0.26 again for 6/8 subjects a whole grade improvement.  Overall the Progress 8 figure for the academy was 0.6.  So you can see a positive none gap with Attainment being 5.3 for all pupils and 5.1 for PP pupils a very small gap.  The HA as a group achieved 0.33.  So again a very small gap of 0.07.




An excellent year and the following figures give you a better indication of this:

To overcome the -0.13 in Maths we are offering GCSE statistics to top sets in Year 11 largely to improve maths grades and Further Maths GCSE to insure we achieve more 9 grades.  Out of 58 students 23 are completing both causes and 66% are PP in line with the academy’s average.


We have approximately £400,000 this year in total for the PP grant.  All interventions are tried and tested and we receive some excellent discount from the organisations.
