Who is the Handbook for?

A middle manager or senior leader: you’ll become your school’s Pupil Premium Champion, and you’ll spearhead your Pupil Premium strategy. We recommend that a team of stakeholders works through the Handbook so that the responsibility and thinking is shared, and so that success can be widely celebrated.

The Handbook can be worked through intensively over a fortnight (in advance of an impending Ofsted inspection, for example) but, ideally, it should be worked through slowly and steadily over one or two terms.

Based on the wealth of experience of consultants at Inclusion Expert, it will be of use to staff at any level and any amount of relevant experience: from those with no previous involvement to those who have been working with the scheme since its introduction. It serves both as a from-scratch guide and as a source of pre-designed frameworks and useful tips for those who have been working on it for several years.
