Pupil Premium

At Newfield School our aim is to ensure that no children are disadvantaged at school in any way. Please see the documents below on how Newfield School use the Pupil Premium funding.

What Is Pupil Premium Funding?

Pupil premium funding was introduced in 2011 to help schools to close the attainment gap between children from different socio-economic backgrounds. The sums of money paid to schools vary depending on whether the school is primary or secondary and which category the pupil comes under.

Who Is Entitled To Pupil Premium And What Qualifies For The Funding? 

Pupil premium eligibility in 2019 is restricted to children who:

  • are eligible for free school meals or have been eligible in the previous six years
  • have been looked after, or are covered by a guardianship or residency order
  • have been adopted from care
  • have a parent serving in the armed forces
