Pupil Premium 2022 to 2023: conditions of grant
The Department for Education (DfE) has made a number of amendments to the guidance and requirements for pupil premium which schools should be aware of when developing pupil premium strategy statements for 2022-23.
A new requirement has been added to the conditions of grant:
‘To support schools to use PPG in line with the 3 tiers outlined, DfE have published a ‘menu of approaches’, which has been informed by evidence of effective practice. Schools must use their PPG in line with this menu from the start of the 2022 to 2023 academic year. Schools are not required to allocate PPG to every approach on the menu, but any activity funded by PPG must fall under one of the approaches listed.’
The ‘menu of approaches’ is outlined on page 7 of the updated using pupil premium guidance.
The Education Endowment Foundation have produced a Pupil Premium Menu Evidence Brief exemplifying each aspect of the DfE ‘menu of approaches’, with signposts to high quality evidence and practical resources to support schools.
