Learn about your pupil premium reporting requirements for 2022-23, and see examples of other schools' published strategy statements.

8 April 2022: we reviewed this article to make sure it reflects the conditions of grant for 2022 to 2023. There have been no changes to your reporting requirements.

You must use the DfE's template to publish your strategy statement

The template, along with sample statements to help you fill it out, are available here.

You must fill yours out for 2022-23 by the end of December 2022. The DfE will perform monitoring checks on a sample of schools' published statements.

You must demonstrate the evidence basis for your spending

In 2022-23, as with the previous year, you must show how your spending strategy is informed by research evidence, referring to a range of sources, including the toolkit published by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF). The DfE says this in the conditions of grant.

Activities should include those that: 

  • Support the quality of teaching, such as staff CPD 
  • Provide targeted academic support, such as tutoring
  • Tackle non-academic barriers to success in school, such as attendance, behaviour, and social and emotional support 

These are set out on page 3 of the EEF's guide to the pupil premium.

Example statements from schools

Please note: in the links below, see the most recent statements for examples that are in the required format. Statements from previous years were not published using the template.
