Northfields Infants and Nursery School

Pupil Premium Statement


The PUPIL PREMIUM is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between their peers.


It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been: -


  • Registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years (£1,320 per pupil)


    At Northfields we have identified the following barriers to learning:-


  • Speech and language difficulties
  • Deprivation
  • Lack of enrichment opportunities
  • Emotional well-being


At Northfields we have adopted a number of strategies designed to support this group of children. These include individual tracking of attainment, extra-curricular 1:1, small group support, and additional classroom support from a Teaching Assistant as well as specific therapeutic interventions such as Drawing and Talking and Nurture Group.


These measures are proving successful in enabling these children to continue to make good progress.


Early Years Pupil Premium


The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years settings to improve the education they provide for disadvantaged 3 and 4 year olds.


Children will attract the funding if they meet the set criteria (further details available from the school).


Parents will be asked to complete the funding form to see if they are eligible before their child starts attending the school.


The school receives an additional £100 each term the child attends the Nursery.
