Planning for expenditure of Pupil Premium is completed annually as part of the Budget Planning Cycle i.e. for expenditure on the financial calendar. Previous years' expenditure and the impact of the work is reviewed and the following year's plans are based on this. The next review is in Spring 2018.
Progress and achievement are reviewed annually in line with the school year so there is an overlap between the two processes. The finances are reported against the financial year and pupil progress against the academic year. We aim to try and sustain any additional provision at least through the summer term to align with the school year and if changes are required due to funding this is usually implemented for the academic year.
