What is a Pupil Premium Review (PPR)?
Every school has a duty to ensure that every individual child is given the best possible chance of achieving their potential, despite any disadvantage. The Government provides Pupil Premium funding, which is in addition to main school funding, to help address national inequalities between the achievements of children eligible for free school meals or children in care and others. The Pupil Premium Grant is allocated to schools based on the number of students who are known to be eligible for free school meals or have been eligible in the last six years. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual students within their responsibility.
A PPR will look at how your school is spending its pupil premium funding so that you can utilise your funding effectively to improve the achievement of disadvantaged pupils.
We will work closely with you to establish what outcomes you would like to see as a result of the PPR and we will provide you with a written report outlining our findings. The cost of the review will depend on how long we expect the PPR to take and will include the cost of travel.

Pupil Premium work at Sidney Stringer Academy:
Following a review at the start of the Spring term consultant Dave Smith told us that the practice and support for our Pupil Premium students was outstanding. Sidney Stringer Academy, he said, has excellent systems in place and that our use of data to effectively support students is also very impressive. He was also impressed with our focus on homework and believes, as we do, that this is a real benefit to students. He also felt that because we know our students so well, we are able to give outstanding support which underpins the outstanding progress that they make.
