Pupil Premium Funding - Do Governors know that they are accountable?

A course specifically designed around the receipt and use of Pupil Premium Funding. Social mobility is at the top of the Education agenda. Disadvantaged pupils tend to perform less well when compared to their non-disadvantaged peers. Pupil Premium Funding is designed to help diminish the difference between the performance of disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged pupils. 

Do Governors know:

How much funding is received by your school or academy? How is it spent? What are the most effective interventions? What is the impact of that spend?

Are governors content that the funding is making a real difference to the outcomes of disadvantaged pupils?

How do they know?

Make sure that your governors are properly prepared for the questions that they may be asked!
