New Performance tables show students make more progress at Harris academies Rss
Posted on: October 13th 2017
New figures released today by the Department for Education indicate that the Harris Federation is the top performing multi-academy trust for pupil progress in England yet again.
The Harris Federation’s overall Progress 8 score showed an increase on the previous year’s performance up from
+0.47 to +0.59 this year.
Three Harris academies – Battersea, Morden and Bromley – were among only 33 schools that achieved scores above 1, meaning students achieved, on average, more than a grade higher in their best 8 subjects than at schools with a comparable intake. This puts them in the top 1% of all secondary schools for progress.
Final data will be published by the Department in January 2018.
Harris Federation Chief Executive, Sir Dan Moynihan, said:
“TODAY’S PROVISIONAL PROGRESS FIGURES ARE OUR BEST YET. A SCORE OF + 0.59 SHOWS THAT STUDENTS AT HARRIS FEDERATION ACADEMIES ACHIEVE BETTER OUTCOMES THAN EXPECTED, COMPARED TO OTHER SCHOOLS, WITH THREE OF OUR ACADEMIES ARE AMONG THE VERY TOP 1% IN THE COUNTRY FOR PROGRESS.
“THESE FANTASTIC RESULTS ARE DOWN TO THE HIGH EXPECTATIONS WE HAVE FOR EVERY STUDENT – WHATEVER THEIR STARTING POINT – AND OUR CONSTANT DRIVE TO DELIVER CONSISTENT, HIGH-QUALITY TEACHING IN EVERY LESSON AND ACROSS EVERY SUBJECT.
“OUR AIM IS TO HELP OUR STUDENTS ACHIEVE THEIR VERY BEST: THESE FIGURES SHOW THAT IS HAPPENING IN OUR ACADEMIES.”
