Use our action plan and provision map templates to help you plan your pupil premium provision and demonstrate effective use of your funding.

Set objectives for the year with our action plan

How to use it

Use the action plan to: 

  • Review your spending from the previous academic year - summarise the objectives that you set and the impact of spending on eligible pupils
  • Set your objectives for the current year and the actions for achieving them. Make sure you set clear success criteria and timescales for each action so that you and your governing board can monitor progress over the year 

Read guidance and use our checklist to help you monitor your provision.

Examples from schools

  • Harehills Primary School's pupil premium action plan sets out the desired outcomes to lessen the gap between pupils eligible for pupil premium and other pupils, and outlines associated actions
  • George Abbot School's action plan for disadvantaged students outlines actions in 7 areas for development: monitoring and tracking, teaching and learning, curriculum and inclusion, interventions, engagement, transition, and communication 

Map out interventions with our template

How to use it

Add the interventions you have in place, and the impact you expect them to have on pupils' attainment and wellbeing. You should make sure the interventions link to your action plan and help you achieve your pupil premium objectives. 

It should be a working document that's easy for you to update and easy for the school community to understand.

You can read more about the key features of provision mapping in archived guidance published by the Department for Education.

Examples from schools

  • Linchfield Community School includes a pupil premium provision map as part of its 2018/19 pupil premium report. It sets out how funding will be spent in 3 core areas: academic achievement, enrichment and engagement, and wellbeing
  • Little Hill Primary School's pupil premium provision map also focuses on the same 3 key areas and provides an overview of provision, the pupils who'll be included and the cost to the school
