Governors are required to monitor and evaluate how well pupils are learning, and to use their assessment as a basis for school improvement. A priority for governing Boards is to ensure that all groups of pupils in their school are performing well in relation to both national expectations and to other pupils within the school. The Government, and Ofsted, want to see how schools are closing the gap in performance between any low achieving groups and the other pupils.
A particular focus of this session is on pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds who qualify for Pupil Premium funding (including those qualifying for free school meals). The course will also consider other nationally recognised pupil groups, such as those with special educational needs and disabilities, but delegates will discuss any groups of pupils in their own school who are at risk of under-achieving.
