Practical Pupil Premium Strategy toolkits containing advice and guidance, prompts, proformas and exemplars - available here

The Sutton Trust Toolkit provides guidance for teachers and schools on how to use their resources to improve the attainment of disadvantaged pupils. The Toolkit currently covers over 30 topics, each summarised in terms of their average impact on attainment, the strength of the evidence supporting them and their cost. It has been recommended by the Department for Education, Ofsted and the headteachers’ associations as a valuable resource in prioritising pupil premium spending.
