Funding based on equity is a no-brainer; how to use these funds is the more difficult task. Ensuring that only high-probability programmes of high impact are chosen is a great start. The Sutton Trust–Education Endowment Foundation Toolkit 1 is emerging as a key resource to sort the wheat from the chaff. It is helping to stop schools implementing low probability programmes, stop the ‘but we are different’ mentality that pervades school innovation and stop the tendency to see satisfaction as the outcome. We know much about what works best and what does not, and we know that we can have high impact on all pupils.
