You'll want to evaluate any interventions based on the impact they have on the pupils' learning, alongside the cost and relative value for money. Your governors will also want to consider this.
Be clear on the desired outcome of each intervention
Before you begin to evaluate the effectiveness of an intervention, remind yourself what you wanted to achieve with it. For example, it might have been to:
- Accelerate progress or close gaps in a particular subject
- Prepare pupils for life after school
- Support the pupil in achieving their objective from a special educational needs (SEN) or education, health and care (EHC) plan
- Help improve:
- Mental health and wellbeing
- Physical development, such as fine or gross motor skills
