PPG Strategy at Chadwick High
At Chadwick High…..
All members of staff, governors and teaching assistants accept responsibility for ‘socially disadvantaged’ pupils and are committed to meeting their pastoral, social and academic needs within the school environment. Chadwick High is committed to ‘Narrowing the Gap’ between vulnerable pupils and the pupil premium forms a vital part of that process. The Management Committee reserve the right to allocate the pupil premium funding to support any pupils or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.

Financial Funding for PPG
The allocation for PPG funding for this year is as detailed below. It is worth noting that because of the way in which funding is allocated and the transient nature of our students funding does not always match the actual number of PPG students in the school. However as a school we will always strive to meet the needs of our PPG students regardless of the actual funding given.
