Making the Difference for Disadvantaged Pupils in Hertfordshire Primary Schools
A bespoke course for invited Hertfordshire primary schools
A unique opportunity to engage in a research-based programme supporting Hertfordshire primary schools to improve Pupil Premium outcomes for their pupils
The gap may have widened but the link between family attainment and educational attainment can be broken.
A good education can transform lives for the better. Conversely, children who finish school without attaining the expected standards will struggle both in further study and the world of work. This is why a focus on the attainment gap between children from economically disadvantaged backgrounds and their fellow students is critical to ensuring a positive future for all. Participants in this programme will explore:
- What the evidence says about how disadvantaged learners make progress
- How we can respond to the disadvantaged gap in light of the pandemic
- What your school can focus on to make the biggest impact
- How your Pupil Premium strategy can drive your school’s improvement
This programme is led by Herts for Learning and Sandringham Research School. It will include training from Marc Rowland, the UK’s leading authority on the addressing the disadvantaged attainment gap who powerfully illustrates effective Pupil Premium provision through the eyes of children. In addition, Marc will provide bespoke visits and support for each delegate’s school.
The programme will culminate in the development of a set of principles of effective Pupil Premium provision, rooted in the practice of Hertfordshire primary schools taking part.
