As pressure on school budgets rises, it is essential to implement the pupil premium grant effectively, in order to maximise value and close the attainment gap between disadvantaged students and their peers.
Westminster Insight's one-day Pupil Premium conference will focus on the impact of pupil premium and how to maximise its effectiveness. Hear directly from the Institute for Effective Education on evidence-based approaches to improving opportunities for disadvantaged students. This conference will also explore the barriers preventing better parental engagement and find solutions to improve education and wellbeing outcomes.
Our expert panel will discuss different approaches to spending, monitoring, and evaluating pupil premium, to enable you to make well-informed decisions and maximise the benefits for pupils. Hear case studies from trailblazing schools addressing different proportions of eligible students, to examine the strategies they have implemented and the impact they have had on disadvantaged students.
Aimed at all primary and secondary school headteachers, members of senior leadership, pupil premium leads and champions, and local authorities, join your peers to share best practice and energise your pupil premium strategy.
