Raising pupil attainment through Family Learning

This guide is for head teachers and school governors to help them invest their Pupil Premium funding in Family Learning programmes. Family Learning has long been shown to produce positive impacts for the families targeted by the Pupil Premium by raising aspirations, increasing parental involvement in their child’s learning, improving outcomes and closing 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 and includes the information that school governors and head teachers need to invest their Pupil Premium funding into provision which is effective at tackling disadvantage and improving outcomes for children.
