How will parents know that the money has been well spent?

We track students’ overall progress against their targets regularly so that we can quickly see the impact our provision is making. Progress is reported to you five times a year, and also at our Parents’ Review Days and Consultation Evenings. If your child takes part in an Intervention Programme, we also measure how s/he is progressing at the start of the programme and again, at the end, so that we can measure improvement and see the difference.

At the start of each financial year, we publish, on our School Website, an outline of how we intend to spend our Pupil Premium for the coming year and, at the end of each financial year, we publish details of how the money was spent, with a brief report on the impact of this spending.
