About the Webinar

This webinar will provide school governors, senior leaders and headteachers with an evidence-based approach towards improving pupil outcomes for disadvantaged learners.

The limited opening of schools means that many children will have experienced a loss of learning time, peer relationships, teacher relationships, subject knowledge, curriculum breadth, structure, routine and support around their wellbeing.

The impact of this will be disproportionately felt by pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds. With many schools already facing challenges in trying to overcome an attainment gap, it means that many disadvantaged children are likely to fall even further behind.

In this webinar, Marc Rowland, the UK’s national authority on effective Pupil Premium provision, discusses how schools can act now to help bridge the education gap. He will explore how schools can implement a high expectations and inclusive teaching strategy to help negate the impact of school closures on the attainment of disadvantaged pupils.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding how improving inclusive teaching practice and focusing on achievement in the classroom should be used to tackle disadvantage.

  • Recognising the Pupil Premium as an opportunity and the importance of placing pupil needs over labels and accountability measures and using it to drive performance.

  • Identifying how schools should use research evidence to inform and direct their approach to bridging the gap.

  • Focusing on areas that can be controlled or influenced, enhancing parental engagement and building language development and independence in pupils.

  • Recognising a whole school responsibility towards outcomes of disadvantaged pupils and the importance of building strong relationships.

Great Guru

The webinar provided lots of food for thought, especially about 'Pygmalion in the Classroom' effects or self-fulfilling prophecies for pupils with low prior attainment. Educational Psychologists can add value with school staff by 1) helping them to be research-literate about whole school approaches adopted 2) training, modelling and helping to evaluate group level strategies and 3) helping staff and parents explore a wide range of factors for individual pupils consultatively, including thinking about how and when Teaching Assistant support is deployed.
