Key Messages..... “Today schooling needs to be much more about ways of thinking, involving creativity, critical thinking, problem- solving and decision-making.” ‘Pakeman found the challenges for improving outcomes for disadvantaged pupils are varied and there is no “one size fits all”. So they took a multi-strand approach together with rigorous tracking and assessment procedures so any gaps in pupils’ learning are quickly identified and addressed.’ Relentless focus – even when lying in the bath.......
Today’s Agenda...... 5 key themes to be covered during the training: a.Management and key characteristics of Pupil Premium. b.An overview of current & proposed PP initiatives across Cheshire East Schools – Primary & Secondary. c.Supporting Governors to monitor PP within the school. Coffee break / Networking a.Governors involvement in external monitoring PP work across the school. e.Small Group sessions – specific Q&A.

The management and key characteristics of Pupil Premium Top 8 PP FACTS for Governors: How is PP calculated and who for Website information required Named PP leads PP Action Plan Key interventions How is money allocated Ofsted expectations Overall Evaluation
The management and key characteristics of Pupil Premium Self-review questions for governing bodies: Have you considered research and reports about what works to inform your decisions about how to spend the Pupil Premium? Use of EEF ? Do you know how much money is allocated to the school for the Pupil Premium? Is this identified in your budget planning? Is there a clearly understood rationale for how this money is spent and what it should achieve? Is this communicated to all stakeholders including parents?
The management and key characteristics of Pupil Premium Self-review questions for governing bodies: What improvements has the PP allocation brought about? How is this measured and reported? Can you isolate PP spending from the rest of the budget and ascertain what difference it is making? Do you know whether leaders and managers are checking that the strategies are working? Will you know and be able to intervene quickly if outcomes are not improving in the way you want them to?
Summary of key themes based upon PP monitoring : 5 key themes: Where would you judge your school against these themes ?

PP Work across Primary Schools: The Aspirer Teaching Alliance Commission led by Ash Grove Academy – Executive Principal Kevin Simpson. 8 Primary Schools across CE 2 Secondary Schools LA Edge Hill University IOE - London
Why Aspirer ? Pupil premium was a major factor in the initial bid which led us to talks with the LA about helping coordinate the project. Ash Grove has 80% ever 6 children across the school. Been on a journey to ensure PP children make maximum progress. Now PP outperform non PP children in every year group. Kevin’s philosophy is that even though he has a lot of children in receipt of PP, many of the strategies they use can be used on much smaller scales.
The Offer..... 1 : 1 sessions Each school will have the opportunity to request half a day of focused audit, discussion and action planning around the use of PP money in their school. These reviews will be led by: Kevin Simpson – Ash Grove - Macclesfield Caron Corden – Parkroyal - Macclesfield Sandie Isherwood – Marlfields – Congleton Jo Ashcroft – Wilmslow Grange – Wilmslow
The Offer..... Hubs Hubs will be theme based (based on the needs of the school) and will meet once every half term. The Pupil Premium Champion will be the representative at these meetings. The themes may change and evolve over the year There will be a focus on innovation and action research – impact How will the hubs run? – Approximately 1½ hours Session 1 – Feedback from all members of the group Session 2 - New research and learning Session 3 – Individual action plans to run back at school SPECIFIC HUB FOCUSED UPON PP GOVERNORS : TUESDAY 8 th JULY – 6.00 – 7.30 pm at Chimney House Hotel.
The Offer.... CPD We will run CPD sessions across the year linked to the key priorities set by schools. Themes might include: ECAR and literacy based interventions Maths recovery Good to Outstanding teaching and learning Developing social and emotional competencies Collaborative learning TEEP Raising aspirations Feedback.
PP monitoring & accountability : Governors John Dunford : 5 Questions Governors Need to Ask 1.Do we know where our achievement gaps are in our school ? 2.Do we ALL know who our PP learners are and know how the school is monitoring their progress ? 3.Have we accessed the evidence of what works to accelerate disadvantaged pupils’ progress ? 4.How are we planning and targeting activities for PP learners ? 5.How will we know our activities are having an impact ? ( What evidence are we gathering for Ofsted ?)
PP Governor / External Monitoring : Question & Answer session 3 Questions covered : Typical of questions to PP Governors by Ofsted / external review by NLE. What is the quality of the answers given ? What answers/ evidence would you use ?
Supporting Governors to monitor PP within the school Undertaking an internal PP monitoring review : Ensures detailed analysis of PP Action Plan. Allows PP Governor to consider the collective ownership of PP throughout the school. Generates clear evidence of the impact of PP interventions. Allows you to promote Pupil Voice. Allows you to feedback to all governors on all aspects of PP work throughout the school. Proposed methodology that PP Governors could follow
The external PP review process – what does it entail? Learning from those reviews undertaken to date : The importance of the pre-review documentation Ensuring that impact is clearly evidenced for each intervention Having a clear understanding of which strategy/strategies have had the biggest impact and why Not being afraid to repeat the info given in the pre-review documentation The importance of governor training To demonstrate impact in the classroom Governors involvement in external monitoring PP work across the school.
Q&A Session...... Proposed three Groups : Group 1 Those who feel they are well advanced in terms of PP work in their school. Group 2 Primary specific issues. Group 3Those who are just starting their PP work.
Next Steps....... What have I gained from today ? Do I feel I have a clearer understanding of how the PP programme will work for my school ? So what will I do next back in school ? Reminder : 8th July – Initial PP Governor Hub meeting. EVALUATION FORMS PLEASE
