Managing the Pupil Premium - Creating successful outcomes and having the evidence of impact for stakeholders

pupil premiumThe use of Pupil Premium funding to close the achievement gap between those pupils receiving it and their non-Pupil Premium peers continues to be a key area of accountability in the August 2016 OFSTED handbook, a focus which is intended to ensure that schools and academies succeed in their efforts to provide the best possible learning opportunities for their disadvantaged pupils. This event brings together best practice, a wealth of expertise and the latest advice and guidance in how to ensure that schools can show profound evidence that Pupil Premium funding has a lasting impact on ensuring all pupils achieve their full potential.

This one day course will provide:-

  • A review of current DfE and OFSTED requirements, what evidence OFSTED are looking to see and any changes that those involved need to be aware of
  • A focus on recent research that has been undertaken into effective intervention strategies and the impact these are having on learning, achievement and progress of specific groups of learners
  • An opportunity to look at tools and techniques that will support strategic improvement in the use of pupil premium
  • Time to reflect on what is working well, what could be improved and any innovations from the day that might be completely new and innovative
  • Resources to use to support the production of an action plan analysing and using relevant data and tracking documentation
  • A facilitated workshop in the afternoon give time to reflect on how Pupil Premium funding is currently used and its impact on learning, to decide on next steps and to begin to respond to the training input by completing a RAG-rated audit, producing an action plan, analysing external and internal tracking data, updating policy documents and reviewing the on-line statement.
  • There will also be an opportunity to consider the increasing range of recently researched interventions reported on through the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) website

In his role as a national trainer and consultant, former head teacher Nigel Bishop brings his wide experience of school-based learning and leadership to bear on a variety of current issues, notably the Pupil Premium and learning support. His warmth and gentle humour combine with enthusiasm to revive those who learn with him, as well as equipping them to continue moving mountains. The content of the event will be highly beneficial to both primary and secondary leaders and managers who have responsibility for this important funding stream.
