Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium funding is intended to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

Pupil Premium Nationally

The pupil premium funding for publicly funded schools in England is intended to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

Pupil premium funding is available to:

  • local authority maintained schools, including special schools and pupil referral units
  • voluntary-sector alternative provision with local authority agreement
  • special schools not maintained by the local authority (NMSS)
  • academies and free schools, including special and AP academies

In the 2020 to 2021 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

  • £1,345 for pupils in reception year to year 6
  • £955 for pupils in year 7 to year 11

Schools will also receive £2,345 for each pupil who has left local-authority care because of 1 of the following:

  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order
  • a residence order

If a pupil has been registered as eligible for free school meals and has also left local-authority care for any of the reasons above, they will attract the £2,345 rate.

Pupil Premium at Newfield

Each financial year Newfield receives Pupil Premium to help narrow the gap in performance and improve the quality of teaching and learning for pupils who are eligible, and claim for, Free School Meals. The amount of this grant will vary from year to year and it is heavily subsidised from the total school funds available in order to ensure our children receive consistent staffing expertise.

At Newfield School all our children are vulnerable and we have identified that no particular group of children do less well than any other group. Newfield has developed a Pupil premium position statement & Pupil premium provision criteria to support understanding of how we use the funding to provide interventions.
