Pupil premium reviews

A Pupil Premium Review is specifically designed to evaluate how effectively the pupil premium funding is spent in your organisation.

Coast2Coast Pupil Premium Reviews are carried out by Nardeep Sharma, NLE, who has an impressive and award-winning track record in securing the very best outcomes for disadvantaged students. A review can be commissioned by you at any time, if you are looking to improve your school’s pupil premium strategy and benefit from the fresh perspective of a high profile school leader.

Ofsted may recommend that you commission a review if, as a result of a section 5 inspection, it identifies specific issues regarding the provision for disadvantaged pupils. A full review takes 2-4 days to complete over a period of 2-6 months. The review cost is £550 per day plus travel costs.

  • The support Philip Morant Academy gained from Colne Academy was not only highly effective but led to a partnership that was difficult to see rivalled anywhere else in the county.
  • The Teaching School at the Colne has been extremely effective in enabling us to work collaborative with other schools. Coast2Coast has delivered outstanding CPD where great ideas have been put into practice with successful outcomes for our students. I have grown immeasurably as a result of my involvement.
  • Coast2Coast has been invaluable to our improvement journey. Staff had opportunities to learn alongside colleagues, receive quality training and support others. It was this mindset of "looking outwards", that I believe accelerated our progress from the "requiring improvement" category to "outstanding".
  • Having become a Specialist Leader in Education in SEND, the impact has been immense on both my professional and personal goals. The opportunities to work with other professionals have been incredibly rewarding, and the experience has improved my confidence and belief in myself.
  • Becoming a facilitator for the NPQML with Coast2Coast has been inspirational. I am fortunate to be surrounded by committed professionals who are reflective, forward thinking and want the best for their students. To help them explore and develop their practice is an incredibly worthwhile experience.
  • As a new middle leader in the school, the CPD provided has been some of the best my team and I have been involved in. The conferences have informed and developed my own practice and that of my department, giving us common ground as we moved forwards.
