Measuring the impact of PPG spending
White House Academy will evaluate the impact of each intervention at the end of each term, at our Pupil Progress meetings. These are run with the class teacher, the Principal, Associate Principal and SENCo, using the most recent teacher assessments.

Following on from the meetings, the interventions may be reorganised for PPG pupils, to make the best use of the resources. Data used includes, teacher assessment data, scrutiny of pupils’ books and pupil voice. Evaluation will look at academic gains and how pupils’ self-confidence has developed as a consequence of the intervention, as well as any other relevant outcomes such as improved attendance and exclusion rates.
