The Pupil Premium is one of the most important tools we have to address the stubborn link between family income and education outcomes. Used purposefully, it can help tackle some of the barriers that stand in the way of eligible pupils’ progress.
But getting the most out of your Pupil Premium requires careful consideration and planning. Our guide – and its accompanying resources – are designed to support you to plan, implement, monitor, and sustain an effective strategy.
They align with the Department for Education’s template for creating a Pupil Premium strategy as well as its ‘menu of approaches’. This means you can be confident that your approach fulfils the expectations of the Pupil Premium strategy document.
