At the conference you can explore the latest insights, research and best practice in delivering outstanding Pupil Premium interventions for all pupils to enhance attainment and support improved learning outcomes. Also gain key updates from leading experts and practitioners in supporting pupil progression, improving the impact of interventions to reduce barriers to learning and developing high quality strategies to narrow the attainment gap for all pupils.
Caroline’s conference address starts at 9.30am followed by Ali Jaffer, Head of Policy and Innovation (Social Mobility Commission) giving the opening keynote speech; he is focusing on the next steps in enhancing social mobility across the education system. There is also a keynote on lessons from Ofsted on supporting outcomes for disadvantaged pupils. The full agenda can be viewed on the Pupil Premium Strategy website.
One of NFER’s primary objectives is to provide evidence on the factors affecting social mobility, educational outcomes, and later careers, in order to ensure that all young people have the opportunity to progress and succeed.
