Ensuring effective use of pupil premium:Using pupil premium to raise achievement and tackle disadvantage

To help participants to understand the current policy on pupil premium and explore how pupil premium can be used effectively to raise attainment and close the attainment gap, PBM Have developed a course called  Using Pupil Premium to raise achievement and tackle disadvantage. The course looks at how to evaluate and demonstrate effective use of the pupil premium, and ways to develop a strategic approach to Pupil Premium through targeting and planning interventions to best suit their school community.
