  • An outline of the provision that was made during the term.
  • An evaluation of the cost effectiveness, in terms of the progress made by the pupils receiving provision, when compared to other forms of support.

The Headteacher will also meet termly with the Pupil Premium Link Governor who will in turn create a report for the Full Governing Body.

Self Evaluation
