Please see below for a detailed breakdown of the PPG for the current financial year.

We recognise that not all pupils who are eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant will be underachieving, whilst some pupils who are not eligible may be.  It is school policy to assess, plan, and provide support and interventions for any individual or groups of pupils where underachievement may be found.  Some pupils who are eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant who are not underachieving academically may well be targeted for support to enhance their future aspirations, leadership skills and non-academic life experiences.

Assessing the Impact of the PPG:

The impact of the PPG spend is assessed in multiple ways:

·         The Inclusion team keep and update a provision map to track academic interventions against progress over time

·         The school keeps detailed records on children’s behaviour

·         The family support team keeps detailed records

·         The school are currently trialling the use of the Leuven Scale to assess the impact of interventions (see report below).
