Pupil Premium Grant


 

At Chase Bridge our vision is for all children to excel at learning, be able to express their talents and know how to care for others. We are an inclusive school where we all come to learn. We want our children to reach the highest standards, be healthy, safe, happy, develop a love of learning and the skills of independence to make informed choices that prepare them to be successful members in society.

All children at Chase Bridge have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to them, and to be included in all aspects of school life. This does not mean that all learners will all be treated in the same way: when planning provisions, account is taken of children’s varied backgrounds and individual learning needs, including any disadvantages they face, or barriers to learning. In order to help disadvantaged pupils who are in receipt of the Pupil Premium to make excellent progress in their learning, have good attendance rates, and access a range of opportunities to develop socially and emotionally, we have put in place a range of strategies, which can be viewed below.

 

At Chase Bridge, we expect all those children in receipt of Pupil Premium to:

  • make at least expected progress academically in relation to their targets;
  • reach an acceptable level of attendance and lateness;
  • be able to cope with the social, emotional and behavioural expectations at school.

The outcomes for the children eligible for the Pupil Premium are measured in relation to their academic achievement and in particular the end of key stage 2 results, children’s attendance and lateness. We also use case studies to make more holistic evaluations of the impact of our provision that can take better account of the qualitative information we have available.

 

Income, expenditure and provision: 2020-2021

The allocation for Pupil Premium per eligible child: for free school meals is £1,320; for looked after pupils is £2,300 and for Service Premium it is £300. The total amount will be calculated from the January 2020 census. Outcomes will be fully evaluated at the end of the academic year and income will be spent in the following ways:

  • Before and after school club
  • Provision of financial assistance, to those families in need, with subsidies towards trips, clubs, uniform and out of hours provision
  • Bespoke resources identified by Year Groups that will have most impact on the PPG children in their respective year groups
  • SENCo to provide targeted interventions
  • Deputy Head to have an overview of how PPG funding is spent and work with other senior leaders to create a strategic vision for how to help bridge the attainment gap
  • Welfare Officer will monitor poor attendance and lateness
  • Advice and support will be provided to parents to help with any barrier to their child’s learning
  • The ‘Beanstalk Readers’ organisation to provide support for PPG children who struggle with reading
  • Early morning intervention (Study Squad) focusing on English and maths skills to give a boost to children in these key areas of learning at the upper end of Key Stage 2
  • Additional teaching assistant support for PPG children
  • Employ two Emotional Literacy Support Assistants (ELSA) to deliver social, emotional and behavioural support

2020/2021 STATEMENT

2019/2020 STATEMENT

 

The Pupil Premium Grant was introduced in April 2011. It provides additional funding allocated to schools to support disadvantaged pupils. Funding applies to those registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years. These funds are given to schools to help support these eligible pupils in ‘narrowing the attainment gap’ between themselves and their peers.

 

The post-Looked After Child (LAC) Pupil Premium Grant. This is additional funding applies to children who were looked after by an English or Welsh local authority immediately before being adopted, or who left local authority care on a special guardianship order or child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order).

The Looked After Child (LAC) Pupil Premium Grant is for children who have been in local-authority care for 1 day or more. However, the funding for these pupils doesn’t go to Chase Bridge; it goes to the virtual school head (VSH) in the local authority that looks after the child.

The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) was introduced in April 2015. This is additional funding for early years settings to improve the education they provide for disadvantaged 3- and 4-year-olds.

The Service Premium was also introduced in April 2011. It provides additional funding for pastoral support for those families who have a parent as a member of the armed forces.

 

Recovery Grant


In February 2021, the government announced a one-off recovery premium as part of its package of funding to support education recovery.

The recovery premium provided additional funding for state-funded schools in the 2021 to 2022 academic year. Building on the pupil premium, this funding has helped schools to deliver evidence-based approaches for supporting disadvantaged pupils. The recovery premium was allocated using the same data as the pupil premium. Schools were advised to  spend this premium on evidence-based approaches to support pupils. In line with the Education Endowment Foundation’s pupil premium guide, activities included those that:

  • supported the quality of teaching

  • provided targeted academic support

  • dealt with non-academic barriers to success in school, such as attendance, behaviour and social and emotional support

Like the pupil premium, schools could:

  • spend the recovery premium on a wider cohort of pupils than those who attract the funding

  • direct recovery premium spending where they thought the need was greatest
