Pupil Premium and Service Premium Information


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.


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.
