Webinar Duration: 1 hour 2 minutes (approx.)
This webinar will provide headteachers, senior leaders, teachers and practitioners with advice and practical guidance on adapting teaching for academically driven pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to help them achieve excellent outcomes, in alignment with Ofsted expectations.
Disadvantage comes in many forms and may serve as a barrier to academic attainment. By getting to know pupils and adapting teaching and learning to meet their individual needs, schools can help raise their aspirations and attainment, irrespective of background.
In this webinar Haili Hughes, head of education at IRIS Connect, senior lecturer, mentor and author, and former English teacher and senior leader, explains how labels can lead to stereotyping, and underlines the importance of tailoring pedagogy to the specific needs of pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to help them achieve their potential.
