Using the Pupil Premium at Wadebridge School

We constantly monitor the impact of individual strategies by looking at pupil progress, listening to pupil voice and analysing results (both internal and external). However, it must be noted that the strategies listed below were designed to operate in a complimentary way and it is difficult to evaluate any one strategy in isolation but where strategies seem to be having little impact they are quickly altered or dropped completely; where strategies appear to be having a positive impact we seek to build on this success. 

We carry out regular internal and external reviews focussed on the provision for disadvantaged pupils an these can be accessed below:
