Event description

Description

Improving outcomes for disadvantaged children in Education: Closing the gap

Educational outcomes for disadvantaged children are a growing cause of concern, with marked divides in attainment based on region, socio-economic status, and many other factors

In the 2011/12 academic year, 64% of children eligible for free school meals did not achieve five A*-C GCSEs, almost twice as many as their more affluent peers. These statistics are even more shocking for the worst performing group, white working class boys, where just 28.3% achieve five A*-C grades.


Join us for the Improving outcomes for disadvantaged children in Education: Closing the gap for exclusive insights from leading figures in education on the following topics:

  • Issues – What are the root causes of underachievement among disadvantaged children, and why are some groups affected more than others?

  • Impacts – From regional divisions to underperforming ethnic groups, how do the issues affecting disadvantaged children impact on educational outcomes?

  • Initiatives – How can schools navigate between pupil premiums, academisation, teacher incentives and other initiatives to answer the most important question: what works?
