Pupil premium: 3-year strategic plan
Use our template and guidance to help you develop your 3-year pupil premium strategy.
Consider a multi-year strategy
The Department for Education (DfE) recommends using a multi-year strategy, such as one covering a 3-year period, rather than conducting full annual reviews. Use light-touch annual reviews to form the school’s pupil premium statement.
This is according to the DfE's guidance on pupil premium funding and accountability (look under the heading '3-year strategy').
You'll still be expected to write an annual pupil premium report. Over time, this report will become more focused on the impact of your past spending rather than future strategy.
