Eleventh National Pupil Premium Conference

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

SecEd’s 11th National Pupil Premium Conference will take place on March 29 and will feature two keynotes and 15 workshops, many of which will be led by schools.

The event at Birmingham’s NEC is aimed at Pupil Premium co-ordinators and school leaders from both primary and secondary phases.

The opening keynote will be led by Luke Bramhall from the charity Children North East and its Poverty Proofing the School Day initiative. Luke will ask what life is like for children living in poverty in your school and will reveal the practices, both small things and school-wide policies, that can damage the self-esteem of these pupils and lead to disengagement.

The second keynote is provocatively titled “Why the Pupil Premium isn’t working and what we can do about it”. Matt Bromley will justify this claim but then discuss the key approaches, revolving around language and literacy, that can still make a difference in narrowing the gap.

Following the keynotes, a number of interactive and practical workshops will take place. Secondary-relevant workshops include:

  • Behaviour, exclusion and the Pupil Premium – tackling behaviour challenges and supporting wellbeing.
  • Two workshops focused on strategies, solutions and intervention ideas for Pupil Premium students, including one focused on students with multiple issues.
  • Case study: Using cycling to open the door for Pupil Premium students.
  • A range of specific Pupil Premium ideas and interventions (with implementation advice).
  • Creating the right Pupil Premium culture via effective policies, practices and people.
  • Achieving high-quality teaching and learning across the EBacc/core subjects for Pupil Premium students.
  • Case study: Effective approaches to raise aspirations.
  • Case study: Effective approaches to boosting literacy, including reading.

The event will also feature delegate networking time and a Pupil Premium exhibition. Delegate places are available at £269 until January 31. They are £299 thereafter.
