Impact.

The Achievement gap in every year group closed against national ‘other’ students in 2015-16. Please see attached graphs.

Behaviour and engagement visibly improved as measured by our HMI visit where reports comment on the lack of obvious difference between PP students and other students in  work quality.

PP NEETS were reduced and targeted students improved their overall attendance, the attendance at parents evening also improved.
