Despite year-on-year increases to pupil premium funding, the attainment gap in the classroom continues to widen. At this crucial moment of changing accountability measures and ever-tightening budgets, how does one ensure that the most disadvantaged in our schools aren’t left behind and their talents left untapped?

This one day conference will be host to leading practitioners delivering thought-provoking case studies and practical strategies on how to most effectively overcome the barriers to disadvantaged pupils and their learning. 

It will look at methods to drive whole-school cultural change to accommodate the needs of all pupils by ensuring meaningful parental engagement, best pupil premium spend, mental health awareness and aspirational drive in learners.

Featuring in-depth keynotes with leading experts, attendees may also expect a choice of practical workshops including:
• case studies of successful and sustainable parental engagement
• evidence-based guidance on most effective pupil premium spend and evidencing
• insight on building aspirations and motivating pupils
• strategies for engaging all staff in a positive and inclusive school culture.

In addition, delegates will be able to book a one-to-one consultation on their online pupil premium strategy as part of this course. Delegates will be invited to book a consultation slot in the run-up to the event. Limited spaces are available.
