'It is estimated a baby girl born in 2016 will be 75% more likely to go to university than a boy, if current trends continue' - The Telegraph, February 2019

Throughout primary and secondary education, boys have continued to underperform compared to girls; the complex interplay of pupil characteristics appear to exacerbate this gap.

This one day event will arm attendees with a holistic toolkit to target and help boys self-motivate to achieve, in turn benefitting the entire school community.

This event will host insightful keynotes and content rich workshops designed to address interventions which may lead to engage boys and ensure their progress, including:
• increase boys’ aspirations and motivations through simple in-school and at-home approaches
• take away step-by-step strategies to foster positive attitudes to learning in boys, addressing issues relating to lad culture
• develop nuanced approaches to yield whole-school benefits
• gain effective, successfully-proven strategies to raise boys’ overall level of literacy and reading for pleasure
• deepen understanding and interpretation of school data, allowing delegates to produce actionable insight for raising the attainment of boys.

Speakers include:
• Steve Baker, Behaviour and Attendance Consultant, Ofsted
• Jimmy Cartledge, Senior Teacher and Pupil Premium Coordinator, Woodchurch High School 
• Bob Cox, Independent Consultant
• Jo Hockton, Data Strategy Manager, Tove Learning Trust
• Will Millard, Head of Policy Advocacy at the education and youth thinktank LKMco
• Jim Sells, Programme Manager, Sport and Literacy.
