Governor Training: Pupil Premium Light Overview

Focus: Leadership
For: Pupil Premium link governors and all governors, trustees that would like an understanding of Pupil Premium


This is a light touch session around Pupil Premium. Governors who want more guidance and support on this can also attend the 2 hour in depth session on Wednesday 12th January 2022 (only 20 places at the January session).

This session will cover:

  • Statutory expectations of schools and governors in developing a pupil premium strategy
  • The importance of pupil premium funding in making a difference to the life chances of pupils
  • What questions governors should be asking schools about pupil premium expenditure


Director’s Note:

This is one area that we know governors are going to be questioned on by inspectors. This light touch session would enable all governors to be able to deal with questions with confidence. Why not purchase extra places using you PP funding and get ALL Governors trained?
