School complaints procedure
For the current academic year, you must include:
- your school’s pupil premium grant allocation amount
- a summary of the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at the school
- how you’ll spend the pupil premium to overcome those barriers and the reasons for that approach
- how you’ll measure the effect of the pupil premium
- the date of the next review of the school’s pupil premium strategy
For the previous academic year, you must include:
- how you spent the pupil premium allocation
- the effect of the expenditure on eligible and other pupils
Pupil premium funding is allocated for each financial year, but the information you publish online should refer to the academic year, as this is how parents understand the school system.
As you won’t know allocations for the end of the academic year (April to July), you should report on the funding up to the end of the financial year and update it when you have all the figures.
PE and sport premium for primary schools
- how much funding you received
- a full breakdown of how you’ve spent the funding or will spend the funding
- the effect of the premium on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment
- how you’ll make sure these improvements are sustainable
Special educational needs (SEN) and disability information
You must publish an SEN information report on your school’s policy for pupils with SEN and should update it annually.
You should update any changes occurring during the year as soon as possible.
The report must comply with:

- the arrangements for the admission of disabled pupils
- the steps you have taken to prevent disabled pupils from being treated less favourably than other pupils
- the facilities you provide to help disabled pupils to access the school
- the accessibility plan you have prepared in compliance with paragraph 3 of schedule 10 to the Equality Act 2010.
- regulation 51 and schedule 1 of the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014
Public bodies, including local-authority-maintained schools, are covered by the public sector equality duty in the Equality Act 2010. This means you have to publish:
- details of how your school is complying with the public sector equality duty – you should update this every year
