The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. Harris Primary Academy Beckenham Green is committed to promoting the progress and attainment of all pupils, whatever their backgrounds.
The Pupil Premium forms an additional part of the annual budget and is targeted for specific use. Only Parents/carers can apply for Pupil Premium funds – staff are happy to support and explain the application process, but cannot make the application itself.
Please note Pupil Premium funds are NOT used to fund school lunches for Reception, Y1 and Y2 children.
