The National Pupil Premium Conference will 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.

Attendees will 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. There will be dedicated streams for best practice interventions at primary and secondary stages, as well as for effectively deploying teaching assistants to support disadvantaged pupils.

The impact of the COVID-19 lockdown period on disadvantaged children and young people, and how to overcome this in the short and long term, will be a key focus of this year’s Conference. Considering how to best reach all pupils, discussions will include the implementation and impact of the £1 billion support package announced by the Department for Education in June 2020, including £350 million for the National Tutoring Programme and £650 million for schools specifically.
