Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium at Newington Academy

Newington Academy receives a Pupil Premium Grant for each child who is entitled to receive Free School Meals or who has been entitled to Free School Meals over the last six years, and for any Looked After Children or Service children:

We are required to publish online information about how we have used the premium.

At Newington Academy:

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils.

  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed

  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at any one time.


The range of provision includes:

  • Small group interventions to overcome gaps in learning

  • 1:1 support

  • Additional teaching assistant support

  • Acquiring effective materials aimed at raising standards, particularly in reading and mathematics.

  • All our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving children to at least age related expectations. Initially this will be in Literacy and Numeracy.

  • In addition to supporting academic progress, pupil premium funding will be used to support children's Emotional Health and Well-Being through designated ELSA support, Time to Talk interventions and alternative provision timetabling as appropriate.

  • Pupil premium resources may also be used to target able children on FSM to achieve ARE of GD levels of attainment

  • Our school will publish information on how we have used the Pupil Premium Grant to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’, for socially disadvantaged pupils.

  • Extra-curricular opportunities for pupils with particular talents and needs

  • Music tuition

  • School educational visits (residential and day visits)

  • Social and emotional groups

  • Speech and language
