Pupil Premiums

Pupil Premium Statement

Mayfield School receives a Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) for each pupil that is eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or has been eligible at any time in the last six years. A similar grant is also available for some pupils in the care of the Local Authority and the children of armed forces personnel.

The school has responsibility to make good effective use of this money to ensure that pupils are not disadvantaged by their family circumstances. Our PPG policy gives further details of this provision. We use the analysis of school data to inform our decisions and to evaluate our success. We can evidence that all of our pupils are making good or better progress as a result in pat of the decisions that the school has taken for the expenditure of the grant.

The objective of PPG is to raise attainment and achievement of pupils through:

  • Provision to raise literacy and maths levels
  • Provision of technology to support learning or give improved access.
  • Early intervention.
  • Enhanced learning opportunities through enrichment activities.
  • Provision of social and emotional support to improve skills, behaviour and well-being.


Our pupil premium children and young people achieve and progress in line with their peers due to the interventions and provisions made.  This is evidenced in data, ie. pupil progress data and expectations, photographic and video recording, anecdotal observations and learning to live material.  Other evidence will include reductions in behaviour incidents, re-integration readiness assessment, FFT and Thrive assessments.

Sport Premium

Primary Sport Funding

Mayfield School recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.

Our Primary School PE and Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.

What is the PE and Sport Premium?

The primary PE and sport premium was introduced in March 2013 to improve the provision of physical education and school sport in primary schools across England. The £150 million per year funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health, and Culture, Media and Sport (DfE, DH, DCMS). The funding is allocated directly to primary schools and is ring-fenced. This means it may only be spent on improving the provision of PE and sport in schools. In February 2014 the government committed to continue the funding until 2020

How much funding will schools receive?

All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils between the ages of 5-11 on roll will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus an additional premium of £5 per pupil. Schools with up to 17 pupils will receive the sum of £500 per pupil. Schools will receive the funding in two lump sum payments annually.

However, in the 2016 Budget, Chancellor George Osborne announced that revenue from the soft drinks industry levy will be used to double the primary school PE and sport premium from £160 million per year to £320 million per year from September 2017.

What does the new sugar tax mean for the PE and sport premium funding?

This will allow schools to help support healthier, more active lifestyles and will enable them to make further improvements to the quality and breadth of PE and sport they offer. They will also have the freedom to choose how they do this. Schools are to be held accountable for how they have used this additional funding.

How is Mayfield using its Sports Premium?

Some of our Primary School PE and Sport funding is used to employ a PE specialist, Kinetic Sports, who work across a number of schools. This guarantees a sustainable way to ensure a lasting impact on sport within Mayfield and the local community.

Our subject lead for PE will coordinate sporting programmes, competitions, CPD and offer help and support concerning subject knowledge, funding opportunities and links with community clubs, coaches and National Governing Bodies.

At the end of every year they will be reporting on the impact that the funding has had at Mayfield School and will be setting out new plans to further the development during the course of the following year.
