New research shows success of poorer pupils at Harris academies

A new report by The Sutton Trust has shown that the Harris Federation’s secondary academies outperform other academies and state-funded schools in raising standards for the poorest pupils.  The research, by Professor Merryn Hutchings, Professor Becky Francis and Dr Robert de Vries, looks at the educational outcomes achieved in 2011 and 2013 by disadvantaged pupils.  These are defined as those who have ever been eligible for Free School Meals between Year 6 and Year 11 and looked after children. The researchers considered a broad range of educational outcomes and found that: Compared with other academies groups, Harris has the highest proportion of disadvantaged students achieving at least five A* - C passes including English and maths.  Within this, the researchers also concluded that Harris is among the most effective academies groups for pupils who are not disadvantaged. At 7.3%, Harris has a lower attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers than any other academies group.  The gap is also significantly smaller than the average for academies (18.8%) and for all mainstream schools (25.7%). Harris uses considerably fewer ‘equivalent qualifications’ than the average for academies and the average for all mainstream schools.  Because of this, the researchers name Harris as among the most successful chains ‘when we consider the points achieved from GCSEs alone’. A higher proportion of disadvantaged pupils at Harris are making the expected progress in English and maths than in any other academies group. A significantly higher proportion of disadvantaged pupils at Harris academies achieved the Ebacc in 2013 than the average for all mainstream schools. Whereas in all mainstream schools just 7% of children who did not reach the nationally expected standard (Level 4) at age 11 go on to get five good GCSE passes including English and Maths, Harris academies achieved more than double this in 2013 and have scored consistently highly over on this measure over the past three years. The research also highlights that Harris academies are among the most successful at teaching pupils with average and high prior attainment.
