SPECIAL OFFER: THREE COPIES FOR £15. SIMPLY PROCEED NORMALLY THROUGH BOOKSHOP AND DISCOUNT WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY APPLIED

Published in partnership with the National Education Trust, this book provides essential information and advice to help schools make best use of the Pupil Premium grant and improve outcomes for disadvantaged learners.

The author visited more than 100 schools over two years and here he shares examples of innovation and excellence in their use of the additional funding. The book includes official Government directives on the Pupil Premium, which was introduced in 2011 to narrow the attainment gap between disadvantaged learners and their more affluent peers.

Ofsted guidance – analysis and challenge tools for schools

"Marc Rowland gives a whistle-stop guide to effective pupil premium expenditure whilst gently coaxing the reader to research beyond the pages of his book; to learn for themselves and to believe that anything is possible. Marc offers us, as school leaders, practical advice for PPG spending  (as well as on mindset and aspiration), from which excellence for all as ‘standard’ can be gained. I found myself with his book in one hand, tablet in the other – keen to maximize on the signposts within and keen to reflect on practice in the school I lead. A valuable read – and one that will undoubtedly impact on schools on many levels."
Amanda Jennings, Headteacher, Ray Lodge Primary School, Woodford Green, Essex

"A Practical Guide to the Pupil Premium is an excellent resource for any headteacher, school leadership team or governing body. The author has managed to do three invaluable things: he demonstrates what excellence ought to look like, identifies the possible barriers schools may encounter in using the grant effectively and, perhaps most importantly, offers clear and effective solutions to ensure its effective use. For those in schools who have the responsibility for managing Pupil Premium, the Guide will provide a standard against which they can measure their provision. Written in an accessible and jargon free way, it will be also be an invaluable guide for all governors to help them understand Pupil Premium and their responsibilities in challenging leadership teams about provision and outcomes."
Kate Dethridge, Headteacher, Churchend Academy, Reading

"It does what it says on the tin. This is an engaging, straight-forward practical guide to help schools consider ways of improving the impact of the Pupil Premium funding, with lots of sign-posting to good practice in many of the schools which Marc Rowland visited while undertaking this research.  Even schools currently showing a high impact on this area can learn from the book and get good ideas for further improvement. I know that our school will be introducing a number of the strategies outlined in this Guide. This book isn’t just about the Pupil Premium, it is about good school leadership and values-led schools rather than those that dance to the accountability tune to meet targets in league tables."
Paul McAteer. Headteacher, Slough and Eton School

    As a TA/tutor, I found this book hugely interesting and it gave me some important background knowledge about this funding. Some very interesting ideas that I look forward to discussing with the SLT.
