Our offer

Bradford Birth to 19 Teaching School is able to provide both primary and secondary school pupil premium reviews. Our aim is to enable schools to diminish differences and provide strategic and operational school to school support in order to deliver on the spirit of challenging disadvantage as in addition to fully complying with the guidance. To undertake this, we follow the national guidance for pupil premium reviews, available here.

Our pupil premium review will be completed by an experienced Local or National Leader of Education. 

What do you need to do in preparation?

We would ask the school to provide the following supporting information in advance of the visit: Headteacher report to governors, school SEF, Raise online document, latest OFSTED or HMI report, school development plan, any FFT reports, a link to the website displaying statutory pupil premium information and minutes for the last 3 governor meetings and SLT meetings.

The Pupil Premium Review framework will form the direction of the review and scaffold discussions during the visit.

What will happen in the review?

During the review we will check how well policy and practice match in your school. This will necessitate a discussion which will focus on the following areas:

A structure for the day will emerge from our evaluation of the documentation but it is likely to include:

1. A learning walk

2. Scrutiny of performance data

3. Pupil interviews

4. Depending on the evaluation: observation of teaching and learning with a particular focus on pupil premium learners

5. Middle and senior leadership interviews (SENCO, Eng and Maths leaders)

6. Talking with parents of children who are eligible for pupil premium

7. A meeting with governors and the governor responsible for pupil premium

In order to contribute to the continued strengthening of leadership and management, we would welcome a developmental meeting at the end of the day with governors in attendance.


We would like to align the development of your practice with a further opportunity to support you in sustaining the impact of actions taken.

Cost: £1000


The review will take 2 days and will include half a day of preparation, a full-day visit and half-day follow-up to further support the school. You will also gain access to our resource tool and key question prompts to use once the review has taken place.
