How do we evaluate the effectiveness of Pupil Premium?

The progress of pupils eligible for pupil premium is assessed through the termly collection of academic data.

The effectiveness of the allocation of funds is rigorously reviewed through the school’s provision map. The provision map allows us to record and evaluate the effectiveness of interventions accessed by individuals and groups of pupils.

Virtual Schools require the submission of individually evaluated data regarding the allocation of pupil premium + for looked after children (LAC). The LAC premium is managed by the designated Virtual School Headteacher (VSH) and used for the benefit of the looked-after child’s educational needs as described in their personal education plan.

The allocation of pupil premium + for pupils who are formally looked after and is now adopted or left care under a special guardianship or residence order is reported to parents / carers on an individual basis.
