Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Equalities & Additional Intervention

 We believe that all children should be equally valued at our Academy. We strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination, and to develop an environment where all children can flourish and feel safe. We have a range of agreed policies.

Chobham Academy 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 into 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:

  • Students from families that are financially disadvantaged (Pupil Premium)

  • Students who arrive at Chobham with below nationally expected performane in any curriculum area

  • Boys and Girls

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

  • Students who have English as an additional language (EAL)

  • Students who have Special Educational Needs or a Disability (SEND)

  • Students who are Gifted and Talented (G&T)

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

  • Students who are Looked After Children (LAC)

  • Young carers, sick children, children from families under stress


The Harris Chobham Academy Pupil Premium spending plan 2017-18

Secondary and Cross Phase

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in 2011. This grant which is additional to core school funding, is seen by the Government as the best way to address the national inequalities between students eligible for free school meals, or have been within the last six years, (PP) and Looked after Children (LAC) and other students. This grant will ensure that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the students who need it most. PP is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable in our budget. Academies can decide how PP money is spent as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual students for whom they have responsibility.

At Chobham Academy we support all of our students. We do this by providing high quality classroom teaching supplemented by interventions to support vulnerable learners as well as additional support to enable our high ability students to achieve high academic standards. All leaders in this Academy including the Governors are committed to ensuring that PP funding is targeted to provide the best possible outcomes to students who may be at a disadvantage.

Overall current PP % = 42.06%

Number of LAC students: 4                                         

We have used our Academy data on attainment, progress, attendance and exclusions to look at where there may be any gaps between FSM and LAC students compared to students who at not FSM or LAC. These are areas which nationally show there are gaps and this leads to a conclusion of inequality of provision. At Chobham Academy these gaps are less than the national trend and they are closing rapidly since opening, however the gaps are still evident and we aspire to close these completely.

Key barriers to success:

  • Attendance and punctuality
  • Literacy
  • Cultural capital

These are the three key issues which can cause underachievement in out disadvantaged students. We are committed to eradicating these barriers and therefore the spending plan has been prioritised in these areas to maximise the potential of our disadvantaged students. Every outcome is carefully scrutinised in order for us to re-direct resources as appropriate; staff at every level are directly involved in this evaluation so that every student is catered for.
