It is imperative that every school effectively utilises Pupil Premium funding and that this funding is being used to have a transformative impact on disadvantaged pupils education. However, funding alone is not necessarily a guarantee to increased attainment, therefore, effective strategies need to be developed that enable schools to spend pupil premium funding in the most efficient and effective way possible.

Outstanding pupil premium strategies tend to be evidence-based with clearly measured transformative outcomes and impact and at a time of stretched budgets, school leaders and governors should be looking at delivering outstanding, value for money Pupil Premium strategies that are able to deliver the best outcomes for their most disadvantaged pupils.

Attend this Creating and Implementing an Effective Pupil Premium Strategy training course to learn how to develop an effective Pupil Premium strategy that you can take-away and implement within your own school that focuses on closing the attainment gap, delivering outstanding teaching and learning and providing effective support for disadvantaged pupils.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learning and understanding the recent changes to the Pupil Premium
  • Developing a cost effective, value for money spending plan for your Pupil Premium funding
  • Utilising data and analytics to demonstrate the impact of your pupil premium spend at your next inspection
  • Examining the best ways to utilise Pupil Premium Plus for looked after and post looked-after children
  • Successfully developing effective teaching and learning practices to raise attainment levels of disadvantaged pupils
