Disadvantaged (learner identity) How do we close the gap? with Professor Gordon Stobbart
October 3 @ 4:15 pm - 6:00 pm
Ofsted’s school inspection handbook defines “disadvantaged pupils” as those:
- With special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)
- Pupils who meet the criteria for pupil premium funding
- Children in need of help or protection who are receiving statutory local authority support from a social worker
The DfE says that ‘disadvantaged pupils’ are:
- Pupils in year groups reception to year 11 recorded as ‘ever 6 free school meals (FSM)’
- Looked after children (LAC), defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority (LA)
- Children who have ceased to be looked after by an LA in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order
How do you define disadvantaged? Can we construct a shared definition of disadvantaged?
Professor Gordon Stobbart will be joining us to examine the impact of ‘ability talk’ and its link with learner identity.
Please join us at the Rathfern Research Network hub to examine and discuss the evidence and arguments about learner identity and how to close the gap.
What can we as a Teacher Research group agree as our key messages from this session?
Entry is free and you do not need to book.
Looking forward to our pedagogical discussion.
