Raising Pupil Attainment through Family Learning: A Guide for Head Teachers and School Governors
Learning and Work Institute
This guide is for head teachers and school governors to help them invest their Pupil Premium funding in Family Learning programmes. The Pupil Premium is additional funding for schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. Family Learning is a pedagogical approach that refers to any learning activity that involves both children and adult family members, where learning outcomes are intended for both, and that contributes to a culture of learning in the family. Family Learning is a highly effective way to raise aspirations, increase parental involvement in their child's learning, improve outcomes and close the attainment gap. It provides a simple solution that enables schools to have a positive influence on the home learning environment. This guide provides evidence of the impact of Family Learning on a range of measures for disadvantaged pupils and their families. It includes the information that you need to invest your Pupil Premium funding into provision which is effective at tackling disadvantage and improving outcomes for children.
