Up until 2015/16 schools received extra funding known as the pupil premium grant, to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from Reception to Year 11. Schools are held to account through performance tables, which includes data on:
- the attainment of the pupils who attract the funding
- the progress made by these pupils
- the gap in attainment between disadvantaged pupils and their peers
OFSTED investigate the impact of the use of the pupil premium grant and currently report back on how effective this is.
This session provides an opportunity for schools to review their current practice, audit the effectiveness of their allocation and hear from schools who have received the Pupil Premium Award. There needs to be a named pupil premium governor and what their role is in this.
