What this course contains

This course will provide up-to-date information about what constitutes effective use of Pupil Premium funding, in the context Ofsted’s most recent expectations. Throughout the session, the course leader will guide you through a range of practical approaches to the use of pupil premium funding to impact on pupil learning.

Intended outcomes

Participants will explore approaches shown to be effective in improving the achievement of disadvantaged pupils.

  • Sharpen the focus on how your school is spending its pupil premium funding in order that attainment and progress for disadvantaged pupils improve, and gaps are closing, both within the school and compared to the national average
  • Improve your school’s pupil premium strategy: planning to allocate funding to raise attainment and progress for disadvantaged pupils, and close gaps
  • Develop rigorous methods for monitoring of the impact of provision
  • Analyse and evaluate how effective your current approaches are in order to identify areas for further development
  • Ensure that governors have a deep, accurate understanding of the school’s effective deployment of staff and resources to secure excellent outcomes for disadvantaged pupils as a result of pupil premium
