Intervention programmes enabled PPG pupils to achieve well although they are still slightly behind non PPG pupils.
Pupils in Reception and Year 1 who receive PPG are targeted for specific support depending on need.
The PPG is therefore being used well as there is evidence of accelerated progress and improved attainment in some areas. This now needs to be extended to all areas.

Barriers to learning for PPG pupils include:
There is evidence that specific individual interventions have been successful. Pupils in year 2 receiving maths intervention made in excess of 4 progress points compared with only 2 points in English where they did not have intervention. PPG Pupils in year 1 made rapid progress in reading writing and maths. From a starting point of below Year 1 emerging to Y1 achieving. This suggests that with success in intervention groups these pupils gained self- confidence and this helps them to achieve in other areas of the curriculum.
A priority is to engage with hard to reach parents. Breakfast club has been successful in this and more of our parents are supporting their children in their learning. This is shown in the increase in the PPG parents writing comments in their child’s reading diary.
