Delegates at the Seventh National Pupil Premium and Ofsted Conference will have the chance to hear directly from Ofsted about what inspectors look for when scrutinising Pupil Premium spending and strategy.

The popular event is being run once again by Headteacher Update and will take place at Birmingham’s NEC on Friday, March 3.

The day will feature two keynote presentations aimed at both primary and secondary colleagues, including an hour with Lorna Fitzjohn HMI, Ofsted’s regional director for the West Midlands.

Lorna will discuss what inspectors look for in the context of the Pupil Premium when they visit schools and will touch upon issues including evaluation and reporting, evidence of impact, Pupil Premium data, and the school website.

Lorna will also discuss case studies of good practice and there will be time for delegates to ask questions.

Elsewhere on the day, another keynote session is to focus on identifying and tackling the common social barriers that can hit pupils’ educational achievement and life chances.

This session is to include input from key stage 2 and 4 students and will be led by Graham Moore from Humanutopia.

Graham and his team work with hundreds of schools to have a positive effect on the hope, confidence, happiness, relationships and employability of young people.

Following on from this session, Graham and the students will also lead a workshop focusing on the key elements of creating a positive school environment to overcome some of these key social barriers.

The day is also to feature a number of workshops for both primary and secondary delegates. The workshops will offer practical ideas, interventions, advice and guidance – giving delegates approaches to take back to their school and implement immediately. Primary workshops include:

  • The role of parental accountability within your Pupil Premium strategy.
  • Identifying, analysing and presenting your Pupil Premium data in an effective way.
  • A range of Pupil Premium intervention ideas (early years and key stage 1).
  • Intervention ideas and impact measurements.

The conference will also include networking time for delegates as well as a Pupil Premium exhibition. Early bird booking is now available at £269 until January 31. The standard delegate rate is £299.
