In addition, staff have been appointed whose role includes specific responsibilities with respect to this group of students; their role will include monitoring, tracking and ensuring appropriate intervention as needed as well as parental liaison.
It is important to note that it should not be assumed that all students on Free School Meals need some or all of this support. There are a number of this group of students in this school and elsewhere who are making excellent progress already, and who will need minimal support as a result.
How will the school measure success?
The school tracks the progress of all students, including students in this particular group. Success will be evidence that shows that students in this group are making better progress than in the past. We will also compare their progress against their peers in the school and nationally, so that we can judge the impact of our work in this broader context.
