Why your school could benefit from a Pupil Premium Healthcheck

In the current and future financial year, schools are due to receive additional funding to spend on improving outcomes for disadvantaged pupils.

With this funding comes an expectation from DfE and Ofsted that schools will spend these funds effectively to ensure that attainment and achievement gaps are closing between eligible pupils and their peers in the school as well as all pupils nationally..

To support this aim, we offer the following external healthcheck of provision and outcomes for pupils eligible for the Pupil Premium.

Who can benefit?

The Pupil Premium Healthcheck can help the senior leadership teams and governors in infant, junior, primary and secondary schools as well as Pupil Referral Units and special schools to improve their understanding of, and evidence their use of, the Pupil Premium.

Key features

  • Analysis of external and school data prior to visit
  • Audit of current use of Pupil Premium funding
  • Validation of school impact assessment during visit
  • Advice on refining systems and accountability to ensure funding is having the greatest impact, drawing on national and local guidance
  • A comprehensive, written report for school leadership and governors outlining key strengths and possible areas for development
