About this webinar:

This webinar lifts the lid on the cost-of-living crisis and the risks it poses to disadvantaged children’s wellbeing and attainment.

We are joined by an expert panel, including Lauren Whateley from Bookmark Reading Charity, Deputy Headteacher Sarah Tai, and Schools Effectiveness Advisor Vicky Matthews, to discuss:

  • New insights on the disadvantage gap
  • Practical advice on how schools can ensure it doesn’t widen during the cost-of-living crisis
  • Effective allocation of pupil premium funding during the crisis
  • How schools can develop low cost, high impact initiatives that effectively target, engage, and elevate attainment and wellbeing for disadvantaged pupils
