The Heath Family Multi-Academy Trust, The Heath Teaching School and it’s wider alliance work together to provide an extensive and dedicated service to school-to-school improvement.

Pupil Premium Reviewer Training

We have been designated by NCTL as the North of England training provider for Pupil Premium Reviewers (PPRs).  This training is for those colleagues who have been designated as reviewers by NCTL.  

To become a PPR, please contact the Teaching Schools Council.

Pupil Premium Reviews

We are delighted to be able to offer Pupil Premium Reviews.

A pupil premium review uses an evidence-based approach to assess how a school is spending its pupil premium funding, and identifies the most effective interventions and overall strategy.

A review should be led by an experienced, independent system leader with a track record in improving outcomes for disadvantaged children.  The review process should be led by an NCTL accredited and trained reviewer.  The Heath School was one of only 3 schools nationally accredited with Pupil Premium Reviewer Training Centre status, designated by the NCTL.

The process involves a rigorous and tested 6 step framework (using Sir John Dunford’s ‘Effective Pupil Premium Reviews’ and the toolkit within it), enabling schools to make the most of the review and find the best ways to raise the attainment of their pupils in receipt of the premium. 

Typically, a review involves 3-4 days engagement with a school, spread over 2-6 months.  

For further information, please contact Wayne Trafford, Director of Teaching School.
