Tenth National Pupil Premium and Ofsted Conference

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

Two keynote presentations and 17 workshops covering topics ranging from the vocabulary gap and classroom practice to looked after children and CPD are on offer for delegates at SecEd’s 10th National Pupil Premium and Ofsted Conference.​

The popular bi-annual event is being run once again by SecEd and our sister title Headteacher Update and will take place at Birmingham’s NEC on Friday, September 28.

We will have as many as 180 secondary and primary school colleagues with us on the day, and the event also offers excellent networking opportunities and an exhibition of services and providers.

There will be two keynote sessions on the day. The first is to be led by the Teacher Development Trust and will focus on the links between effective CPD practice and good Pupil Premium outcomes.

The second keynote, to be led by Graham Moore will focus on how we can create a Pupil Premium culture across our schools that results in motivated students and staff who are free to innovate in order to overcome barriers to learning. This second keynote will be followed up with two phase-specific sessions when delegates will be able to speak with teachers and students from other successful schools about aspects of their Pupil Premium work.

Most of the 17 phase-specific workshops will be led by schools, with others being led by experts in their fields, and will offer practical ideas, interventions, advice and guidance based on experience. All workshop speakers have been asked to give delegates practical strategies and ideas to take back to their schools.

The secondary-relevant workshops include:

  • Classroom techniques & approaches for Pupil Premium students.
  • How two very different schools have worked together to raise Pupil Premium outcomes.
  • The 20% Plan: A whole-school holistic approach to Pupil Premium.
  • Supporting disadvantaged students who use English as an additional language.
  • Motivating your Pupil Premium students.
  • Classroom & revision techniques for effective learning in the context of the Pupil Premium.
  • Identifying the needs of Pupil Premium & Pupil Premium Plus students.
  • Developing a Pupil Premium culture.
  • Pupil Premium interventions: What works, what doesn’t and why.
  • Literacy: Closing the vocabulary gap in years 7 & 8.
  • Supporting the most vulnerable Pupil Premium and Pupil Premium Plus Children.
