    About this toolkit

    This resource has been assembled using information, advice and guidance that is currently

    available in various online locations. Although created by Wakefield Council, the content has

    been provided by a wide range of organisations including the DfE, EEF, Sutton Trust, Ofsted,

    Sir John Dunford, and Teaching Schools. In preparing this resource source references have

    been maintained. The Pupil Premium Conference hosted by the Learners First Schools

    Partnership in January 2015 has played a key role in this development. Thanks are offered to

    those who have freely shared their experience and knowledge that has led to the development

    of this resource.

    Considering the best use of the Pupil Premium funding

    Educational Endowment Foundation (EEF)

    Family of Schools Database

    The Families of Schools database is a tool to help schools understand how the performance of

    their pupils, particularly disadvantaged pupils, compares to other schools with similar

    characteristics. It groups schools into families of 50 according to a number of factors including

    the prior attainment of pupils, the percentage of pupils eligible for free school meals and the

    number of children with English as an additional language.

    The Families tool is a way of facilitating collaboration between schools to ensure that schools

    facing similar challenges can learn from each other. The tool is available via

    http://educationendowmentfoundation.org.uk/toolkit/families-of-schools/.

    At the time of writing the data related only to secondary schools. Primary school data was due

    for release later in the year.

    Teaching and Learning Toolkit

    The Sutton Trust-EEF Teaching and Learning Toolkit is an accessible summary of educational

    research which provides guidance for teachers and schools on how to use their resources to

    improve the attainment of disadvantaged pupils. The Toolkit currently covers 34 topics, each

    summarised in terms of their average impact on attainment, the strength of the evidence

    supporting them and their cost.

    The Toolkit is a live resource that will be updated on a regular basis as findings from EEF-

    funded projects and other high-quality research become available. The toolkit is available via

    http://educationendowmentfoundation.org.uk/toolkit/toolkit-a-z/.

    Projects

    The EEF website includes details of school-based research projects. Information about these

    is available via http://educationendowmentfoundation.org.uk/projects/.

    DIY Evaluation Guide

    The DIY Evaluation Guide is a resource for teachers and schools which introduces the key

    principles of educational evaluation and provides practical advice on designing and carrying

    out small-scale evaluations in schools.

    The aim of the DIY Evaluation Guide is not to replace evidence from large-scale evaluations

    such as those conducted by the EEF, but is intended to help teachers and schools understand

    whether a particular intervention is effective within their own school context. The guide is

    available via http://educationendowmentfoundation.org.uk/evaluation/diy-evaluation-guide/.

    Apply for funding for projects

    Quality first teaching

    Poor teaching has a greater impact on disadvantaged pupils than their peers. This is because

    disadvantaged pupils often don’t have the same levels of support to compensate for the weak

    teaching. Therefore, investment in quality first teaching should not be overlooked.

    Data

    Schools can often over focus on cohort data. When exploring the impact of the Pupil Premium

    don’t forget to consider individual pupil’s performance data – all pupils needs
