About this Event
“The pupil premium was introduced by the previous coalition Government and it is continuing to be supported… precisely to make sure that funding gets to those children who need it most.” – Justine Greening MP, Education Secretary
Since the pupil premium was introduced in 2011, the additional funding for disadvantaged young people has been widely welcomed by teachers, schools leaders and education experts. But despite some high profile success stories, questions have been raised about the effectiveness of the policy when it comes to closing the attainment gap. Nearly two million school children in England are eligible for pupil premium funding but research has shown that more that only a third of them will secure five good passes at GCSE. Those who fail to achieve these grades struggle to move on to employment or further study.
Join us for the Pupil Premium Conference where leading experts from the education sector will discuss how schools can improve outcomes for disadvantaged children and get the most from the additional funding. Plan ahead to anticipate spending needs, understand how to engage pupil premium students and analyse examples of best practice from schools which have used the funding to adopt innovative new approaches.
