How to use case studies

They can be an effective way to:

  • Report to governors or trustees on how you're using the pupil premium and what effect it's having on individual pupils
  • Help inform your teacher training (including early-career teacher training)
  • Share knowledge and experience with other schools (including other academies within your multi-academy trust) 
  • Add context and colour that may not come across through quantitative data alone

You don't need to use case studies in your strategy statement using the DfE's template
