Pupil Premium survey
22 June 2016Add to My Folder
The Sutton Trust and Education Endowment Foundation have published a new survey that polled 1,607 teachers on the Pupil Premium. Here’s a summary of the main findings.
- A small but growing number of schools are using their funding for disadvantaged pupils to offset budget cuts elsewhere.
- Virtually all (98%) of the senior leaders and four out of five of the classroom teachers surveyed believe that the Pupil Premium has allowed them to target resources at raising the attainment of their poorest pupils.
- Teachers are increasingly using research to inform their Pupil Premium spending: six out of 10 secondary senior leaders use the Sutton Trust – EEF Teaching and Learning Toolkit.
