Conclusion

The progress data above for students eligible for PPG shows that attendance, effort and progress   was overall very good. This is in line with the attendance and attainment of students not receiving PPG in their respective cohorts. Students are carefully tracked and monitored to ensure that key educational targets are met for each individual student.  Students are well supported financially to experience a wide range of educational visits and obtain essential learning resources e.g. The Tempest and Isle of Wight residential trip in Year 7, Multi Activity residential trip to Devon in Year 9 and attending modern foreign language plays and field courses in Year 10.

Kendrick School will continue to use the PPG in line with its policy for 2017/18.
