Post COVID-19 catch up and support for disadvantaged pupils - Governance of Pupil Premium WEBINAR

It is reported that disadvantaged pupils have suffered more than their non-disadvantaged peers during the Coronavirus lockdown. Effective use of the Pupil Premium is more important than ever. 

This WEBINAR guides boards on what to look for when monitoring the Pupil Premium grant and other catch-up support to ensure they are making a difference in their school. 

This webinar provides practical guidance on the governance of the Pupil Premium and ensuring you are effectively holding your school to account for the impact of the Pupil Premium and additional grants available to support disadvantaged pupils post the COVID-19 lockdown.  Participants will learn:

  • The latest definition of ‘disadvantaged’?
  • The latest guidance on good use of the Pupil Premium
  • What to look for when approving a Pupil Premium plan
  • How to monitor all strategies for supporting disadvantaged pupils
  • How to agree success criteria and hold to account for the Pupil Premium impact
  • How to oversee value for money of the Pupil Premium fund
All delegates receive an electronic copy of the presentation and supporting materials and resources to help them be more impactful in their governance role.

Who should attend?
Governors or trustees who have responsibilities for Pupul Premium, or governors who want to understand more about governance of Pupil Premium and meeting the needs of disadvantaged pupils. 

Rosemary Lovatt is the NLG Advocate for East of England and NE London. She is an experienced chair and governance tutor who runs the Governance Leadership Programme across England.
