Join SecEd & Headteacher Update for their 11th must-attend one-day conference being held at The Gallery, the NEC, Birmingham B40 1NT on Friday 29th March 2019.

Following on from the success, popularity and relevance of our previous 10 Pupil Premium conferences, the 11th National 'Pupil Premium and Ofsted – Ensuring Successful Outcomes' conference will bring together innovative schools, senior leaders, teachers and other experts to help you discover new deliverable, evidence-based and practical interventions and strategies for raising attainment, overcoming barriers and, ultimately, narrowing the gap for disadvantaged pupils.

With school funding under huge pressure and strong accountability in place, it is vital to maximise the potential of your Pupil Premium Grant and to show detailed evaluation, clear value for money and high impact.

Creating a culture and ethos that empowers parental involvement and equips your teachers and leaders to go above and beyond for students is essential. Join our expert speakers to discuss classroom and school-wide interventions, strategies and practice that can make this a reality for your school.

This event will offer you practical advice and ideas for how to “poverty proof” your school, ideas for new interventions to adapt for your setting, advice on implementing evidence-based and proven interventions, evidence-based guidance on closing the language and literacy gap – all aimed at helping you to raise the attainment and achievement of your disadvantaged students.

 
WHY ATTEND?

This conference will provide you with the opportunity to attend relevant and practical workshops led by school leaders and other experts. All speakers are briefed to provide delegates with practical advice and ideas, interventions and strategies that can be taken away and adapted. The ultimate aim is for you to be able to put these new ideas into practice straight away on returning to your school.

The event features two keynotes, nine workshops relevant to primary colleagues and nine workshops relevant to secondary colleagues.
