After almost nine years of the Pupil Premium, this Headteacher Update event – taking place on Friday, March 27 – will be looking back at the wealth of evidence that has now been published about how schools can best support their most disadvantaged pupils.

Leading the morning keynote will be Education Endowment Foundation CEO Professor Becky Francis, who has spent her recent career immersed in the research evidence that schools need to guide effective Pupil Premium spending.

The keynote will consider what we have learnt in these past nine years about what works with our most disadvantaged pupils. It will look at what the evidence-base tells us about what works and what doesn’t, both in terms of value for money and achieving maximum pupil progress.

The day includes a second keynote led by the National Education Trust’s Marc Rowland – author of A Practical Guide to the Pupil Premium. Marc will discuss the lessons he has learned from his work with schools and others across England. This will include practical insights and reflections on whole-school strategies and classroom-level practice, including from his recent work to create a Pupil Premium toolkit for schools in Essex.
