Pupil Premium

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. 

Provision will be made through 

  • Facilitating pupils’ access to education 
  • Facilitating pupils’ access to the curriculum 
  • Alternative support and intervention within the school 

Main Barriers to Education for PPG Students at Chadwick High 

  • Historic poor attendance and punctuality at their last school 
  • Periods of exclusion from school creating gaps in learning 
  • Un assessed learning needs which contribute to non engagement and low level disruptive behaviours 
  • Low expectations and self esteem 

Addressing the Barriers 

By understanding the needs of our PPG students we can develop the strategies that will support them in; 

  • Assessing learning needs 
  • Meeting learning needs 
  • Filling gaps in their education 
  • Developing their potential 
  • Preparing them for the future 

The Chadwick Strategy involves 

  • Full assessment of all students to identify unmet learning needs. 
  • Working closely with referring schools in curriculum mapping 
  • Personal Learning Plan for every student. 
  • Additional resources for supporting learning in class and 1:1 
  • Therapeutic interventions 
  • Mental Health awareness and supportive interventions 
  • Counselling services for students and family 
  • Motivational and inspirational experiences 
  • Initiatives for attendance, attainment and effort 
  • Revision guides and additional lessons 
  • Key worker for every student with close home links. 
  • A curriculum offer which meets the needs of students and prepares them for their futures 
  • A CEIAG programme that prepares them for their next steps in education, apprenticeship or work.  Only xx% of PPG students became NEET at Chadwick High 

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.
