Pupil premium reviews: using system leaders

Sir John Dunford, national Pupil Premium Champion, discusses the value of using system leaders to review your use of the pupil premium. 

Narrowing the gap between pupil premium pupils and their peers is not an easy task, but a substantial number of schools have shown that it can be done and that the attainment of pupil premium-eligible pupils can be raised to the national average for non-pupil premium pupils and beyond.

To do this requires a rigorous approach to the spending of pupil premium funding and policies should be regularly evaluated in all schools.
