The Pupil Premium Review document is available here. This document was written by a team of people including Sir John Dunford, Steve Kethero (DfE), NCTL staff, Gary Holden, Gill Robinson and Danielle Mason (EEF). The guide is to be used by the Pupil Premium Reviewers when undertaking a review of a school or an academy. It is a ‘guide’ and we hope it can be used by all reviewers as good practice.
We have 9 Regional Pupil Premium Champions:

These Teaching Schools are training System Leaders who have taken up the role of Pupil Premium Reviewers.
Although the training is not statutory it is suggested to new reviewers that they attend the whole day training event so that they are aware of the Guide to Pupil Premium Reviews (March 2016) and that they are following the recommended process so that QA is streamlines across each region. Sir John Dunford who was The Pupil Premium Champion will be attending some of the training events. The TSC are encouraging all NLE to become Pupil Premium Reviewers.
What does Ofsted say about Pupil Premium?
“The pupil premium is making a difference in so many schools. Overall, school leaders are spending pupil premium funding more effectively, tracking the progress of eligible pupils more closely and reporting outcomes more precisely than before.”
“Headteachers know that their schools will not receive a positive judgement unless they demonstrate that they are focused on improving outcomes for pupils eligible for the pupil premium”
