Pupil Premium is a sum of £600 given to schools for each Looked after Child who has been in care for at least 6 months.
Do you want to find out how best to spend your Pupil Premium? Then read:
'Toolkit of Strategies to Improve Learning: Summary for Schools Spending the Pupil Premium.' The Sutton Trust May 2011
The Sutton Trust's 'Pupil Premium Toolkit' is designed to help schools decide how best to spend the PPG in order to raise standards. It lists a variety of intervention strategies and gives information about:
- What the approach is
- Potential gain, expressed in terms of pupil learning months gained
- Applicability (age group, curriculum subject)
- Evidence estimate, a star rating on how robust the research evidence base is
- Overall cost benefit, an overall estimate of cost against benefit
We have also extracted the above into an easy-to-use graph, plotting cost against benefit (see presentation 'Sutton Trust & analysis of PG Best Use' and Executive Summary).
