Website Guidance for Schools' Pupil Premium Strategy

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

New requirements about what schools must publish on their websites about Pupil Premium spending were introduced from September 2016.

In place of the current requirements regarding information about pupil premium expenditure, schools will be required to publish their Pupil Premium Strategy. This should include the following:

  • In the previous academic year:
    • how the pupil premium allocation was spent
    • the impact of the expenditure on eligible and other pupils
  • The current academic year:
    • the amount of the school’s allocation of pupil premium grant
    • details of the main barriers to educational achievement
    • how the allocation will be spent to address the barriers and why these approaches were taken
    • how the school will measure the impact of the pupil premium
    • and the date of the next pupil premium strategy review
    • information for parents/carers about how to claim for free school meals
    • contact details for inquiries.

Schools are also required to explain how the use of pupil premium may have benefited pupils who are not eligible for pupil premium funding, for example if the school has taken a whole school approach to raising standards.
