Deciding how best to spend your pupil premium funding requires not only an understanding of the issues facing your disadvantaged pupils but a thorough understanding of how to implement the solutions most likely to work.
Westminster Insight's one-day Pupil Premium conference will deliver proven strategies from four primary and secondary schools on what works well. It will also focus on how to measure the impact of your pupil premium strategies and how to demonstrate that impact, when held to account for your pupil premium spend.
Aimed at all primary and secondary school headteachers, deputy heads and pupil premium leads and champions, this event will also feature a keynote address from the EEF on how to close the attainment gap and apply the EEF teaching and learning toolkit for best effect.
We all know, however, that narrowing the gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers isn't just about teaching and learning. Parental engagement is also key, as is enrichment and emotional well being, and nurturing and building self esteem. We will, therefore, showcase how schools have achieved success in this area. In addition, the Parental Engagement Network will focus their session on how to engage parents to support learning at school and at home.
