Education Performance

 

Our exceptional 2017 Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 4 performance – a snapshot

Primary 2017 - Key Stage 2

Harris avg.

National avg. (2017)

Proportion of pupils at expected standard 76% 61%
 
(Harris students outperform national expectations by 15% in the combined Reading, Writing and Mathematics tests)
  • This is 15% higher than the national average and a 5% rise year on year.
  • 81% of our students met the expected standard in Reading. (10% higher than national)
  • 87% of our students met the expected standard in Writing. (11% higher than national)
  • 89% of our students met the expected standard in Mathematics. (14% higher than national)
  • 90% of our students met the expected standard in Spelling Punctuation and Grammar. (13% higher than national)

If the Harris Federation was ranked alongside Local Educational Authorities nationally, it would be the highest performing ‘LA’ in the country

  • In terms of Progress, following on from Outstanding achievement at Key Stage 1, overall Harris Primary Academies were in the top 25% of the country for Progress.
 

Disadvantaged students

Our disadvantaged students continued to achieve exceptional results, to further emphasise our commitment that all students should achieve their very best whatever their background.
 
70% of our students, eligible for Pupil Premium achieved the expected standard in Reading, Writing and Mathematics. (9% above ALL students nationally)
 
Our Disadvantaged pupils out-performed our non-disadvantaged students in every measure in terms of Progress.
 
The above data is supported by our Primary OFSTED judgments that show every Harris Primary Academy inspected so far to be Good or Outstanding - with the majority (56%) Outstanding, compared to 20% nationally.
     

Secondary 2017

Harris avg.

National avg.

Progress 8 +0.47 -0.03
Attainment 8 5.38 4.85
Proportion of students achieving Basics 70% 59%
Proportion of students achieving EBacc 35% 23%
 

Secondary – Key Stage 4

Students and staff across the Harris Federation Secondary Academies are celebrating another exceptional set of Key Stage 4 results.
 
Almost 2,700 students across 19 Harris Federation Secondary Academies received some exceptional Key Stage 4 results this month.
 
With the introduction of the new 9-1 grade methodology replacing the conventional A*- G grades in English and mathematics, our academies have continued to enjoy extraordinary successes.
 
Over 69% of all students achieved a grade 4-9 (a standard pass) in both English and mathematics combined.
 
With new tougher government measurement 5-9 (a good pass), in both English and mathematics combined, our students achieved 46%. We know that this will be well above the National Average on both measures given our students arrive at Harris with below average prior attainment, this is an Outstanding achievement.
 
Additionally, 248 students achieved English and mathematics grades at the new ‘super grade’ of 9.
 
In 2017, the Harris Federation EBACC score (grade C, or the new grade 4, and above) is over 35%, which is a year on year increase for our academies and 12% above the national average for 2016.
 

Progress

Nationally, Progress estimates are not released until the end of September 2017, so we can only make predictions based national data releases.
 
The 2 data estimates that we have used, are the 2016 DfE estimates, and a collaborative data set which covers approximately 20% of the national results, we think this 2nd data estimate will be more accurate given the significant changes in English and mathematics examinations this year.
 
Nationally, the average progress across the country is set to zero, so anything above zero is positive progress in relation to what is achieved nationally by this cohort. Negative Progress means that students have collectively attained less than their peers nationally. The progress measure for each student will use their best 8 subjects.
 
Our calculations indicate that 2 schools may have Progress 8 above +1.0 and every school will have a positive Progress 8 measure for the second year in succession. Although we await the release of national estimates at the end of September the table below gives some provisional predictions.
 

 

National (2016)

DfE Shadow Estimates (2016)

Collaborative Estimates (2017)

Progress 8 (All Students) -0.03 +0.38 +0.54
Progress 8 (Disadvantaged) -0.38 +0.25 +0.41

The above data is supported by our Secondary OFSTED judgments that show every Harris Secondary Academy inspected so far to be Good  or Outstanding - with the vast majority (83%) Outstanding.

 

The majority of Harris academies inspected by Ofsted are ‘outstanding’ and the others are all ‘good’: 

  • 24 of our inspected academies are ‘outstanding’ and 11 are ‘good’.
  • Our academies are three times more likely to be ‘outstanding’ than schools nationally.
  • Of 27 academies that joined us because they had previously been considered to be failing, 18 have become ‘outstanding’ and the other nine are ‘good’. 

 

In their 2016 performance measures for Multi Academy Trusts (MATs), the Department for Education said that: 

  • At Secondary, our Progress 8 score was the highest of any large MAT.
  • Our Primary academies were 'significantly above average' in all three performance measures: we are one of just six out of 95 MATs to have achieved this.

 

Closing the gap between groups of pupils is part of the core mission of the
Harris Federation:

  • Consecutive reports by academic researchers at social mobility charity the Sutton Trust have concluded that we are among the top academy trusts for improving the prospects of disadvantaged pupils. 
  • Lower ability pupils are five times more likely to achieve the English Baccalaureate with the Harris Federation than they are nationally.
  • Not only do disadvantaged children in Harris primary academies outperform disadvantaged children nationally, they also outperform non-disadvantaged children.

 

Harris secondary pupils are achieving success based on a core curriculum of academic subjects: 

  • In 2010, the average English Baccalaureate score for the secondary schools (including predecessor schools) that now make up the Harris Federation was just 7%.  This was five times higher in 2017, at 35%. The national average is 23%. 

 

6th Form Success 2017

  • In 2017, over 50% of Harris Westminster sixth formers went on to study at Russell Group Universities, with 16 students going to Oxford or Cambridge and 8 into medicine.
  • 16% of Harris sixth formers won places at Russell Group universities in 2016, compared to 12% nationally.
