STAR Teaching School Alliance Governor Training: Pupil Premium Reviews


CPD Programme for School Governors
Pupil Premium Making a difference to the lives of disadvantaged pupils


 “More successful schools saw raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils as part of their commitment to help all pupils achieve their full potential. They prioritised quality teaching for all, seeing attendance, behaviour and emotional support as necessary but

not sufficient for academic success. They made every effort to understand every pupil as an individual and tailored their programmes accordingly. They linked teaching and learning interventions to classroom work, monitored attainment and intervened quickly to address learning needs. They ensured TAs had the necessary training and expertise to

deliver interventions, provide feedback and monitor progress..”  Supporting the attainment of disadvantaged pupils: articulating success and good practice.  Research report for the DFE November 2015
