School leaders can decide on which activity to spend their pupil premium (and recovery premium) effectively to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils.


We look at all areas of pupils’ learning when planning our Pupil Premium strategy. Evidence suggests that pupil premium spending is most effective when used across 3 areas:

  1. high-quality teaching, such as staff professional development
  2. targeted academic support, such as tutoring
  3. wider strategies to address non-academic barriers to success in schools, such as attendance, behaviour, and social and emotional support.


You can find further information on our annual allocation of funding and impact of expenditure in the Pupil Premium Statements on this page.
