Use our pupil premium report template to help you comply with publishing requirements and report to parents and governors on pupil premium expenditure.

This article is based on guidance from the Department for Education and from the Teaching Schools Council.

Download our template

It's up to your headteacher to decide how you report the pupil premium, there's no required format. 

However, you must publish certain information online. Use our template to help you:

  • Comply with these publishing requirements - put it on your website
  • Report to parents and governors

If you're an academy you'll likely need to publish the same information, although check your funding agreement which will specify exactly what you must publish.

Updated advice from the DfE on pupil premium strategy reviews

The DfE's guidance (linked to above) encourages schools to:

  • Set multi-year pupil premium strategies
  • Reduce workload by only giving these a 'light touch' review every year

You still have to report on your pupil premium strategy every year, but the DfE doesn't expect you to reevaluate your strategy annually.
