Harris Federation making positive impact for low-income students

Education Charity The Sutton Trust has recently released the findings of its research into academy chains and how they influence the attainment of disadvantaged students. The report, entitled Chain Effects 2015: The impact of academy chains on low-income students, examines chains with three or more sponsored secondary academies which have been open for a sufficient time for the sponsor to have an impact on performance. The chains’ performance was compared to the average for all state-funded mainstream schools. There were a number of very positive findings for the Harris Federation within the report. 10 Harris Secondary Academies were included in the analysis, which is the sixth largest sample of the 34 chains looked at. The key finding for the Federation is that it is one of just three chains in which disadvantaged students attain above average across five crucial measures: The percentage achieving five or more good GCSEs including English and mathematics; English progress; Mathematics progress; The percentage achieving the EBacc; Capped GCSE point score. As such, the Federation is one of the chains with the highest proportion of disadvantaged pupils achieving 5A*-CEM (in both 2013 and 2014). It is also noted as “one of the most effective for those who are not disadvantaged” but has one of the three narrowest attainment gaps, meaning all groups are achieving well. Harris is one of just three chains in which disadvantaged pupils make above average progress in English and mathematics. Disadvantaged students within the Federation also achieved average capped GCSE point scores in 2014 which put them in the top three for academy chains. Because the Federation’s use of GCSE equivalent subjects is the lowest of any high-performing chain, its disadvantaged students are in the top three most successful for points achieved from GCSEs alone. Finally, Harris was recognised as “very much more effective” than most chains for pupils who had low attainment in primary school. The proportion of those children achieving five or more good GCSEs including English and maths with Harris is more than double the average.   Sir Dan Moynihan, Chief Executive of the Harris Federation, said: “We are very proud to be recognised as one of the chains which are having a hugely positive impact on the futures of low-income students. This is down to excellent teaching, nurturing pastoral care and exciting opportunities outside the classroom, as well of course as the incredibly hard work of our students themselves.” The full report is available here

Harris Primary Academy Benson is judged to be "Good" in its first Ofsted inspection

Pupils and staff celebrate strong report for school that is “improving swiftly in all aspects of its work including teaching and pupils’ achievement” ”The Executive Principal and senior leaders provide a clear direction for improvement and know what to do to make the academy outstanding” ”Pupils’ achievement is increasing rapidly” ”Pupils from differing backgrounds play together harmoniously and are pleased to receive ‘shining star’ awards for best behaviour” As they end their second year as an academy, staff and pupils at Harris Primary Academy Benson are celebrating receiving their first Ofsted report. The academy opened in September 2013 replacing Benson Primary School which was judged Inadequate by Ofsted. In their report, inspectors praised all aspects of the academy and, in particular, the progress that has been made since it opened: “Pupils achieve well because attainment and the rate of progress are rising rapidly”; “Pupils are polite and friendly and are keen to learn. They are proud of their academy and wear the new academy uniform with pride”; “Teaching has a good impact on learning because literacy, reading and mathematics are taught well”; “Pupils make good progress across the academy and the leaders are working successfully to close any remaining gaps in attainment”;  “Pupils for whom English is an additional language do exceptionally well. They benefit from work that is tailor-made for their particular needs. They gain confidence in speaking English because of the positive support they receive from members of staff and other pupils”; Sir Dan Moynihan, Chief Executive of the Harris Federation, said: “This report demonstrates the excellent progress that the academy has made in its first two years and sets out its direction of travel for the future.  Pupils and staff can begin their summer holiday rightly proud of what they have achieved and confident about their future”. Kate Magliocco, Executive Principal of the academy said: “Everyone at the academy is buoyed by this judgement and report which give an excellent reflection of where we are now and where we intend to be in the future.  Alongside the important detail of the progress and improvement that is underway, it is equally gratifying that inspectors noted how proud our pupils are of their academy. Having happy children is so important in a primary school and we are delighted that children of all abilities and backgrounds feel at home in our academy”.
