Having the resources to target support at disadvantaged pupils is the first step to closing the attainment gap. But it is how those resources are spent that will really make the difference."
Sir Kevan Collins, Chief Executive, Education Endowment Foundation, February 2019
Determining how best to spend your pupil premium funding to ensure that every penny has an impact and yields results for your disadvantaged pupils is no easy task. Once more, the attainment of children who attract pupil premium must improve or questions will be asked.
Westminster Insight's Pupil Premium conference will demonstrate how schools can effectively and efficiently use the financial and human resources they have for maximum impact in raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and closing the gaps between them and their peers.
Designed for primary and secondary school headteachers, deputy and assistant heads and pupil premium leads, this one-day, case study-led event will feature a number of award winning primary and secondary schools that have made excellent use of the pupil premium funding and learned a number of lessons along the way.
Featuring a keynote address from James Turner, Chief Executive of the Sutton Trust on how schools should spend their funding for best effect including an overview of the research to date, this event will also examine pupil premium outcomes in the context of the new Ofsted Education Inspection Framework - an interpretation of the new Framework through the lens of the disadvantaged.
Alongside proven strategies of initiatives that have worked, this event will also demonstrate how to foster a positive pupil premium culture, how to engage the parents to sign up; and how to monitor and evaluate your progress to ensure you really are closing the gap
