Target Group: Governors responsible for the pupil premium grant
Tutors: Marcus Cooper and Joy Langley
Schools receive extra funding known as the pupil premium grant specifically to help raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from Reception to Year 11. Schools are held to account through performance tables, which include 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 investigates the impact of the use of the pupil premium grant, that often forms part of their judgement about school governance.
This session provides an opportunity for schools to review their current practice, audit the effectiveness of their allocation and hear from schools that have received the Pupil Premium Award.
