You’re required to publish how your school uses its pupil premium funding on your website. Find out exactly what you need to include so you can stay compliant.

Information you must publish 

Maintained schools 

You must publish a pupil premium strategy annually, using the templates provided by the DfE. 

These templates, along with sample statements to help you fill them out, are available here. You must fill yours out for 2021/22 by the end of December 2021.  

For the current academic year, you must include:

  • Your school’s pupil premium allocation
  • A summary of the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils
  • How the pupil premium allocation will be spent to address those barriers and the reasons for your approach
  • How your school will measure the impact and effect of its pupil premium spending
  • The date of your school's next pupil premium strategy review

For the previous academic year, you must include:

  • Details of how you spent your pupil premium allocation
  • Information on the impact this had on eligible and other pupils

This is outlined in the DfE's guidance

You'll likely have to publish the same information as outlined above but
