Description The DfE is increasingly focusing its attention on the “bottom” twenty per cent of pupils in terms of attainment and progress. Ofsted Inspectors are asking how schools are analysing the RAISEonline data to identify key groups that are under achieving and what they are doing to boost levels of motivation and learning and the impact of pupil premium funding. In this course, Trevor will reveal the strategies that outstanding schools are using to ensure all pupils make strong progress and attain. These strategies fall under two headings: • Changing learning opportunities to meet the needs of learners • Developing learners to enable them to thrive in the education system. Both strategies are considered at a whole school and classroom level. The course also examines how national strategies, such as the Achievement for All programme, have produced such impressive results in raising the progress and attainment of the bottom twenty per cent of learners.
