    Does your school have pupil premium funding? If so, what activities or measures have been used to ensure that the attainment gap is narrowed between the wealthiest pupils and their poorer classmates? Have the extra activities helped to improve the outcomes of children from poorer backgrounds?

    Do you agree with the Government’s spending watchdog’s report that more accountability and intervention mechanisms are needed to prevent schools from wasting money on ineffective activities?

    What do you think would help children from disadvantaged backgrounds do better at school?
