The introduction of the pupil premium has seen a significant amount of money provided to schools - with some secondaries now receiving an additional £800,000 a year. But with this extra money comes accountability, and Ofsted in particular have become increasingly focussed on judging how schools spend this money and whether it is making a difference to disadvantaged children.
So how do you know if your school is doing all it can to spend pupil premium funds wisely and whether it's effectively targeted on activities likely to make the biggest difference. Beyond the pressure from Ofsted, there is also a moral imperative to make sure that disadvantaged students get the most out of the additional funding.
We have devised a simple but comprehensive audit that allows you to check your school's processes for spending and evaluating pupil premium funds. Our consultant will analyse your school's data and visit you for a day to establish what's working, what's not and what needs to be changed.
They'll then provide you with a clear report identifying key actions and drawing on successes that other schools have had across the country in raising the aspirations and performance of disadvantaged groups.
