Pupil Premium Conference: Improving Outcomes for Disadvantaged Children
Since pupil premium was introduced in 2011, the additional funding for disadvantaged young people hasn’t proven itself to have made any tangible progress in its aim to close attainment gaps. Whilst additional funding to provide a programme of support for pupils who are most disadvantaged is welcomed by teaching staff, there are concerns that it is simply a plaster on wider funding issues facing schools currently, and in turn far more detrimental to educational achievement.
The imperative remains for schools to engage with pupils and families at an early stage to give extra support and nurture their educational development up to GCSE level to give these disadvantaged children the best chance of future success. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, teachers are feeling the pressure to account for all spending and effectively measure the success of their interventions.
Pupil premium funding does offer a lifeline of additional support to pupils who are most likely to be left behind educationally. By incorporating good practice across a school, the programmes designed for the most disadvantaged pupils can prove that additional funding is helpful. Undoubtedly, it shows that anything that supports high quality teaching for children is the most powerful driver in transforming the lives of children in schools.
Leading experts from the education sector will discuss how schools can improve outcomes for disadvantaged children and get the most from the additional funding. Attending this conference will give delegates the benefits of award winning case studies which will cover practical advice for interventions, how to effectively monitor progress, and provide the best in additional support for disadvantaged pupils.
