How well are we meeting the needs of vulnerable children through Pupil Premium strategies?  If this is a question you are asking, then this Pupil Premium Leadership and Governance Step-Up Review is what you need.

This review process is aimed at supporting governors and SLT to manage the accountability of Pupil Premium funding and enable schools to prepare a 3 year strategy for their school.  The review also provides support and training for governors to be directly involved in the Pupil premium strategy and be directly involved with SLT activities eg. Learning Walks which are an effective part of making sure that pupil premium funding is being used effectively across the school

The review is undertaken by a specialist Pupil Premium coach who will work with you to:

  • Audit your existing practice
  • Identify strengths and weaknesses in practice relating to children who need additional support
  • Create a bespoke action plan for development
  • Sign post you to resources that will support you in your development
  • Deliver training to SLT and Governors on Pupil Premium strategies.

You will receive a written summary and access to an online module packed with articles, research and case studies to support your developing practice and an Achievement for All Quality Award certificate that demonstrates your commitment to inclusive practice.

The review process normally takes 2-3 days in total spread over about one month. This includes the preparatory work before going into the setting, the time needed to collect information during the setting visit, the report writing and feedback that takes place after the review and the action planning. Settings may decide to establish an ongoing relationship with their reviewer who can provide follow-up support and advice. The timescale for a review would normally be 2-3 weeks from preparation to reporting. If follow-up support is required schools and settings can book this separately it may vary from intensive weekly visits to a number of visits spread across the year.
