Pupil Premium Reviews

Back to Pupil Premium

We are delighted to be able to  offer reviews of the provision your school makes for its disadvantaged pupils using pupil premium funding.

What does a review entail?

The purpose and outcome of a review is to provide a new pupil premium strategy for your school. The review will be tailored to your needs. As a guide it may include:

  • An analysis of attainment/progress of pupil premium children and identification of gaps/areas for development;
  • An examination of pupil premium spending and the impact so far;
  • Exploration of the effectiveness of existing interventions and consideration of new initiatives;
  • Advice on informed decision making, monitoring and evaluation of the pupil premium and future steps for improvements;
  • Observations of interventions and discussions with key staff, governors and pupils.

Cost of a review

This is negotiable based on the size of your school and the length and depth of the review you want. As a guide, for a two form entry school, a detailed review generally takes 3-4 working days. You can pay for the review using your pupil premium or any other part of your school’s budget.


After the review your school will receive a report that includes action points for improving pupil premium spending, implementation and monitoring effectiveness.

This will be signed off by the reviewers and the school.


To discuss or organise a Pupil Premium Review, please contact Mr C Morris on 01634 844008 or email his PA, Mrs Pullies at pulliesc@sjwms.co.uk
