BPSI Pupil premium review
The Pupil Premium Review Guide has been developed by BPSI to support schools in ensuring that a Pupil Premium review commissioned from System Leaders in Barnet will follow a planned, staged framework, will be consistent and of high quality. System leaders have received bespoke training for delivering reviews using the guide.
Schools will be charged 12 BPSI Hours for a Pupil Premium Review.
The guide and external review process is a key school improvement tool for schools in Barnet to review their practice and to ensure the best outcomes for all disadvantaged pupils in their school.
All schools will be aiming to secure the best outcomes for their pupils. An external review can be helpful to any school in supporting the identification of priorities for improvement.
This guide is intended to be for:
System leaders in Barnet to support schools to improve the achievement of disadvantaged pupils
Schools where headteachers and governors have identified, from self evaluation, that there are aspects of their provision that need to be improved
Schools who have been judged to Require Improvement because of the underachievement of their disadvantaged pupils
Schools where Ofsted have recommended a Pupil Premium review
Principles underpinning the Pupil Premium review process
Schools should complete the audit tool for self evaluation prior to commissioning a review
Schools should commit to moderating their audit through the support of a peer headteacher prior to sending to the review team
Schools will provide the moderated audit and relevant school data prior to the review
Reviewers will complete an analysis of the audit and school data and use this information in partnership with the commissioning school to shape the review
The reviewer will provide summary feedback at the end of the review and a formal report a week later will be sent to the school
The school will then develop an action plan based on the recommendations

How to arrange a BPSI School Review
The flowchart above shows how the process should work.
As stated, schools should first complete the audit tool for self evaluation.
The self evaluation audit should be moderated by a peer headteacher.
If, following this moderation, the school decides (or is required) to commission a Pupil Premium Review, it is at this stage that contact with the BPSI team should be made (see below).
The BPSI Support Team will liaise with the school. The school will decide who they want to conduct their review from the list of colleagues from the list below. All these people have been trained in conducting a Pupil Premium Review. Advisers' contact details are available on the BPSI Members Area or from the BPSI Business Support Team (see below).
Once you have agreed the date with the BPSI Adviser who will lead the Pupil Premium review, the BPSI Business Support team will then liaise with all interested parties to ensure your review takes place.
