About this course

In August 2017, The Education Policy Institute stated that it will be 50 years before we have an equitable school system. It is through the work that you do in your classrooms that you will create this equity and our innovative, research-based, yet practical ideas that will help you do it.

Based on research drawn from national and international projects, as well as our own projects (which have shown outstanding progress), this course will leave you feeling inspired and empowered to implement strategies to support your most vulnerable pupils.

The training will:

  • Give you a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by different groups of disadvantaged pupils, enabling you to plan strategically, based on your current trends and data.
  • Explore the importance of developing a culture of oracy, vocabulary and language across all year groups, including a framework to support staff.
  • Focus on the leadership aspects key to raising attainment for disadvantaged pupils, moving from monitoring and intervention to outstanding proactive provision.
  • Provide you with all the tools needed to become a ‘Pupil Premium Champion’ within your school, from raising aspirations within the community to using language patterns and structures to support pupils in finding their voices.
  • Consider how our Path to Success can be applied, enabling pupils to master the primary curriculum and be ready for the next stages of their education.

Audience:

  • Teachers of EYFS, Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2
  • Teaching Assistants
  • Subject/Phase leaders
  • Senior Leadership Team
