Measuring the Impact
We measure the impact of this expenditure through monitoring pupils in receipt of pupil premium (lesson observations, book scrutinies and pupil discussion) and analysing educational achievement of these pupils compared to other pupils.
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.
