Pupil Premium

Are you deploying your pupil premium in the most effective possible way? In 2013-14 The Pupil Premium rose to £1.875 billion, with schools attracting £900 per disadvantaged child. However with extra money comes extra accountability. You must now publicly account for your pupil premium spending – can you prove that the strategies you implement have a positive effect on your students?

 “…over 50% said that it was having either little or no impact on the way they organise and manage their schools in relation to the use of money on poor children.”
Sir Michael Wilshaw

What Is Outstanding Teaching Training Intervention?
The Outstanding Teaching Training Intervention is an intensive, learning-focussed approach to long-term improvement. At its heart is a focus on effective feedback and assessment, which the Sutton Trust report praised for providing “very high impact for low cost” – a potential educational gain of 9 months.

“One study…estimates that the impact of rapid feedback on learning is 124 times more cost-effective than reducing class sizes.”
Sutton Trust, 2011 

Why Use Outstanding Teaching Training Intervention?
The Outstanding Teaching Training Intervention is an effective, sustainable way of using your Pupil Premium to raise achievement in your disadvantaged learners.

In 2011, the Sutton Trust published a report into the way schools spend the additional money they receive through the pupil premium. It found that many initiatives have little or no effect, at a high financial cost. Ideas which have traditionally been thought to improve achievement were found to be either ineffective or detrimental to progress.

 “Our solution to the challenge of linking spending with learning is to focus on what the evidence indicates is effective in improving teaching and learning”
Sutton Trust, 2011
