 “Today schooling needs to be much more about ways of
thinking, involving creativity, critical thinking, problemsolving and decision-making.”
 ‘Pakeman found the challenges for improving outcomes
for disadvantaged pupils are varied and there is no “one
size fits all”. So they took a multi-strand approach
together with rigorous tracking and assessment
procedures so any gaps in pupils’ learning are quickly
identified and addressed .’
 Relentless focus – even when lying in the bath .......

PP monitoring & accountability :
John Dunford : 5 Questions Governors Need to Ask
1. Do we know where our achievement gaps are in our
school ?
2. Do we ALL know who our PP learners are and know
how the school is monitoring their progress ?
3. Have we accessed the evidence of what works to
accelerate disadvantaged pupils’ progress ?
4. How are we planning and targeting activities for PP
learners ?
5. How will we know our activities are having an impact ?
( What evidence are we gathering for Ofsted ?)
PP Governor / External Monitoring :
Question & Answer session
3 Questions covered :
Typical of questions to PP Governors by
Ofsted / external review by NLE.
What is the quality of the answers given ?
What answers/ evidence would you use ?
Supporting Governors to monitor
PP within the school
Undertaking an internal PP monitoring review :
 Ensures detailed analysis of PP Action Plan.
 Allows PP Governor to consider the collective
ownership of PP throughout the school.
 Generates clear evidence of the impact of PP
 Allows you to promote Pupil Voice.
 Allows you to feedback to all governors on all
aspects of PP work throughout the school.
Proposed methodology that PP Governors could follow

have had the biggest impact and why
