How will the impact of the spending of the Pupil Premium be measured?

To monitor progress on attainment, new measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of students covered by the Pupil Premium. The usual cycle of data collection and the monitoring and tracking of the cohort’s attainment, will be used to inform student progress and enable the early identification of need, support and appropriate intervention. The strategy is reviewed regularly to ensure maximum impact with a full review July each year.
