Sutton Trust advises heads on best ways to deliver improved outcomes

Discussion in 'Headteachers' started by gailrobinson, May 31, 2011.

  1. Splashing pupil premium cash on reducing class sizes, introducing school uniforms or after-school clubs are among the least effective ways to improve results, research published this week suggests.
    According to the Sutton Trust charity, which works to improve educational opportunities for disadvantaged children, headteachers should not spend additional money they are given to boost the performance of their poorest pupils on high-cost methods, such as smaller class sizes.
    Instead, schools should try to get best value for their money by investing in low-cost approaches, such as ensuring their teachers provide quicker and more effective feedback to their pupils.
    And to help schools spend their new cash more wisely, a pupil premium toolkit has been developed by academics at Durham University, providing a Which-style guide to give heads and their teachers the best advice on where to spend their money.
