Pupil Premium Review


The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and close the gaps between them and their peers.


Any school can commission a pupil premium review to look at its pupil premium strategy and identify ways they can use the funding more effectively.


Ofsted will recommend that a school commissions a pupil premium review if they identify concerns with the school's provision for disadvantaged pupils.
