Pupil Premium

Our new book, A Practical Guide to the Pupil Premium, published in partnership with the National Education Trust, will be launched next week.

The book, written by NET deputy director Marc Rowland, provides essential advice and information to help schools make the best use of the Pupil Premium grant and improve outcomes for disadvantaged learners.

It includes action points for teachers, headteachers and governors, and a series of tools provided by Ofsted that schools can use to help them to analyse where there are gaps in achievement between pupils who are eligible for the Pupil Premium and those who are not.

The launch event will take place at St Joseph’s Primary School in Covent Garden, London, on Thursday, September 18.

Regional Schools Commissioner Tim Coulson will launch the book and promote discussion on the Pupil Premium while Marc Rowland will speak about some of the ‘best practice’ case studies featured in the book.

If you would like to attend this launch, please contact events@nationaleducationtrust.net.

To order the book, please visit our bookshop.

Classroom in the Cloud Cover final

We are very pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of an exciting new book that “offers a clear debate and a real vision of the future of education in this country”.

Classroom in the Cloud by Alex McGrath will be published by John Catt Educational on October 13.

The book is subtitled ‘Seizing the advantage in the blended learning revolution’. It aims to focus the minds of teachers and school leaders to take advantage of the opportunities presented by the online revolution and the emergence of blended learning.

The author, who is Head of King’s Ely Senior School in Cambridgeshire, argues that with planning and co-ordination, huge benefits can be reaped from new ways of learning, complementing the traditions of British education.

He looks at the implications for the UK of e-learning practices and techniques introduced overseas and urges teachers and leaders to face the challenges posed by new technology and embrace change.

Classroom in the Cloud has already received some excellent reviews from leading figures in education.

Ian Yorston, Director of Digital Strategy, Radley College, Oxfordshire, said: “Important. Timely. Thought-provoking. Anyone involved in schools needs to read this.”

Gerry Holden, Headmaster of Dover College, said: “This is a very exciting call to arms, offering good, practical advice to those who may feel out of their depth. It offers a clear debate and a real vision of the future of education in this country.”
