The Pupil Premium Grant is allocated for the educational benefit of the children at the school. It is additional money given to schools to help close the gap in achievement of the pupils on Free School Meals, or disadvantaged children, with those who are not eligible.
The money can be used for additional teachers, support staff, resources and to pay for and subsidise activities such as the breakfast club, school trips, visitors to the school and visits.
The money is allocated to children who claim free school meal entitlement.
At Bridge Hall we have found that additional academic and pastoral support can be beneficial in terms of narrowing the gap in achievement between FSM and non FSM children. We maintain small classes each year group with additional adult support, thus giving the class teachers more quality time with each individual child.
We also use the money to fund the employment of support teachers and staff who have a key focus on supporting our vulnerable children and children who need a little extra help to achieve their potential.
