Nature of support
Measuring the impact of PPG spending
The school will continue to measure the progress and achievement of all children in the school through internal monitoring and tracking data. This will include an evaluation of curriculum intervention programmes which will focus on academic gains and how pupils’ self-confidence has developed as a consequence of the intervention.
A strategy plan is put in place each year to ensure that the needs of the children in our school are being met.
It will be the responsibility of the Headteacher and SENCo to produce regular reports for the Governing Body in relation to the the impact of the PPG and the progress of PP children.
