Last week, the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) has produced a free guide which will help those governing get the most out of this important toolkit. The guide signposts those governing to other important resources.
One vital resource which will help schools to make the right decisions is the EEF toolkit. This free resource is designed to provide an indication of “what works” to raise outcomes for pupils based on robust research and to give an indication of the expected impact of different initiatives schools can implement and their associated costs.
Those governing play a crucial role in supporting disadvantaged pupils in schools and, as part of this, governing boards must work with the senior leadership team to make evidence-informed decisions about how the pupil premium should be spent.
