Case Study: The Pupil Premium Toolkit

In 2011, the UK Government introduced the Pupil Premium policy to target funding at pupils from less affluent families, whose achievement was lower than that of their more affluent peers.

To help school leaders decide how to use these extra resources, Durham University’s School of Education and Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring helped create the Pupil Premium Toolkit, which provides a unique cost/benefit summary of the impact of different teaching interventions.

Independent research suggests the Toolkit is now used by more than a third of school leaders in England, and it has directly influenced Government spending decisions.
