Supporting additional needs within our curriculum

Equality of Opportunity at Beckenham Green

 

Harris Primary Academy Beckenham Green  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:

 

from families that are financially disadvantaged (PP - Pupil Premium)

who are Looked After Children (LAC)

who arrive with below nationally expected ability in any area (LAPs)

boys or girls

from minority faiths, ethnicities, travellers, asylum seekers, refugees

who have English as an additional language (EAL)

with Special Educational Needs or a Disability (SEND)

who are more able, gifted or talented

who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender (LGBT)

young carers, sick children, children from families under stress

 

1. Our Equality Duty:  We believe that all children 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.

 

2. Our Pupil Premium Fund: Please click links at bottom of page for detailed reports of spending and impact from previous years and planned spending for 2020-2021

 

The pupil premium is  part of our overall budget that we receive annually. We are required to account specifically about how we use this fund. It is allocated based on the number of children meeting a national criteria based on the Ever 6 Measure. That includes the total number of:

 

Pupils eligible for fee school meals – within the last 6 years

Children looked after

Service children

We use our funding to precisely target specific teaching and learning programmes or related activities. All our pedagogy and practice  (including use of some commercial programmes) is  research based with strong evidence of having  impact here at Beckenham Green,  in schools nationally or internationally. 

 

We are committed to ensuring that all our pupils progress very well and access high quality teaching and provision - every day. We carefully track the progress of all children, at least every six weeks, including our disadvantaged pupils in every class. The information is shared with all parents and carers via our half term reports detailing pupil  progress and attainment.  Tracking also enables us to evaluate the impact of our teaching and intervention programmes so we can  adjust provision and tailor support. That way, we can make sure we are having the desired impact on pupils’ learning and progress.

 

Programmes are used across our Early Years, KS1 & KS2 to help identified children accelerate progress in their mathematics, reading, writing, speaking and listening. We review our Pupil Premium at the end of each academic year, our next review will take place in June and July 2020.. 

 

3. Additional Interventions: We provide a range on additional interventions including;

 

Read Write Inc.

 

A highly differentiated  approach to teaching phonics and early literacy . The programme was developed by Ruth Miskin who  is one of the UK's leading authorities on teaching children to read. One of her team regularly visit and work closely with us at Beckenham Green to continually assure quality, evaluate and improve our teaching and programme delivery. This approach has significant impact on our outcomes in reading and writing for our Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils, including our disadvantaged children.

 

We also offer;

 

Therapy services

 

You will see from our report that we also use an element of our  Pupil Premium Funding to support social and emotional aspects of learning for some pupils through  our dedicated counselling service.

 

 

Education Welfare support

 

We have our own Education Welfare Officer. Both  provide specific and tailored support for individual families to support  pupil attendance and therefore, access to education.

 

Dedicated Senior Teacher support

 

Providing 1:1 Tuition and group  interventions for pupils at risk of underachievement in  Key Stage 2 to secure their secondary readiness.

 

4. Our Primary Sport Funding: please see our curriculum section for how we use of this additional money and how monitor the impact of  that spending.
