The autumn timelines for schools and colleges: mandatory and useful information were published recently and are a helpful resource.
Don’t discount the ‘useful’ timeline as it does what it says on the tin – provides a useful set of information.
The three most notable entries for me are:
- the requirement now to publish online a pupil premium strategy for maintained schools and the timeline for other mandatory publications
- the updates to ‘Keeping children safe in education'
- and the teacher workload recommendations
The pupil premium strategy information is useful, although not mandatory for free schools and academies, and is part of a suite of links including a link to the Teaching Schools Council website which provides example pupil premium strategies and information on how to conduct an effective pupil premium external review. At One Education our pupil premium reviews are informed by this document along with a great deal of experience and other research such as the EEF.
