Pupil Premium Reviewer Training (South Yorkshire)
Utilising evidence from the Teaching Schools Council (TSC) Pupil Premium Review Guide, which aims to improve the use of funding and impact on disadvantaged learners, in establishing a framework for evaluating provision. To maximise the benefits of the Pupil Premium Review Guide, a full day’s training is provided to explore how best to utilise peer-to-peer review. The day focuses on how to prepare for the day of the review itself, approaches to gathering evidence on the day of the review and good practice in providing feedback and reporting. This training is essential for academies intent on strengthening Pupil Premium self-evaluation, as well as gaining skills in undertaking on-going peer review and support.
