Code: 19DMS/048A Intervention tracking in SIMS

Schools will be able to monitor and gauge how these resources affect Key Performance Indicators. Provide evidence of Pupil Premium grant strategy, spending and effectiveness. Delegates will learn how to build a detailed evidence base of the interventions offered for disadvantaged and vulnerable pupils, and school attainment strategies. The cost of additional resources can be recorded, enabling tracking of the cost and effectiveness of each intervention.

Further analysis can be achieved to show the progress of various groups of pupils, i.e. Pupil Premium, SEN and school defined groups of pupils. The following reports are available in the Interventions module in SIMS to support progress monitoring and improve student outcomes: - School Intervention – showing interventions in place across the whole school - Student Intervention – giving details of interventions for individual pupils - Interventions Outcome Analysis – see how successful different types of interventions are across the whole school - Interventions Cost Analysis – showing cost per intervention and per pupil
