Exploring Pupil Premium usage in Special Schools

Effective use of Pupil Premium finances


Some quality research exists to support schools in relation to spending Pupil Premium finances in the best way to impact on children's progress and development. (Please see links below for a Primary and secondary school examples)


At the moment however little has been published about how effectively Pupil Premium finance is being utilised in the special school sector. The Better Together Alliance is leading some small scale research into school leaders perceptions of most effective initiatives trialled within special schools and expect to publish this later in the Summer Term.


If you would like to contribute to this research please contact the Alliance. The results and conclusions will be published here when available.
