How the Governing Body holds school leaders to account for the spending of the PPG
Subject Leaders and Senior Leaders report termly to the Governors’ Curriculum and Standards Committee on the analysis of pupil progress and attendance data.  The progress of the group of pupils eligible for PPG is closely monitored and compared to that of the whole school. The Governors’ Finance Committee also monitor the use of this funding to ensure best value is obtained from these funds and that it is targeted to those eligible for PPG. The SENCO team reported to Governors with a detailed explanation of their work.

At the end of the academic year 2014-15 those pupils eligible for PPG had made progress across the curriculum in line with those not eligible for PPG.
