Measuring the Impact
As a school we measure the impact of this expenditure through monitoring pupils in receipt of pupil premium. This is achieved through lesson observations, book scrutinies and discussion with pupils. Analysing educational achievement of these pupils compared to other pupils is monitored closely.

Each half term pupil progress meetings are held, in which the educational achievement of pupils in receipt of the pupil premium is discussed. There is also an internal review of the schools pupil premium strategy in November, March, and June each year.
