Pupil premium review.

A Pupil Premium Review looks at how your school is spending its pupil premium funding. The purpose of the review is to improve your school’s pupil premium strategy, so that you spend the funding on approaches shown to be effective in improving the achievement of disadvantaged pupils.

The National Forest Teaching School has two trained pupil premium reviewers, both of whom are serving school leaders.

How to commission a review.

You can commission a review at any time if you want to improve your school’s pupil premium strategy. All schools should consider whether they could benefit from the fresh perspective of an experienced school leader to help them try new approaches or improve current provision to help raise the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils.

The time required.

The length of time required will be dependent upon the size of the school; we would estimate that most reviews would take between 1 and 4 days.

How to budget for a review.

You can pay for the review, and any subsequent follow-up or support, using your pupil premium funding or any other part of your school’s budget.
