Aims for Pupil premium
At Twydall Primary School we are committed to providing the best educational experiences possible for our Pupil Premium children. We are striving to ensure each individual child is given the opportunity and inspiration to recognise and achieve their full potential.
Nationally there is an achievement gap between the most disadvantaged pupils and their peers. We aim to close this gap both in our school and nationally. Our goal is that each child discovers the enjoyment of learning, and has the opportunities, confidence and resilience to reach their full potential.
Quality first teaching is at the heart of all that we do. We recognise that all our children are different, and have different strengths and weaknesses. Through rigorous monitoring of progress and attainment, we assess the needs of individual pupils and endeavour to quickly put in place strategies and support to address gaps and barriers to learning.
What is the Pupil Premium Funding?
The school’s Pupil Premium Grant is money the government allocates to each school to support children, who may be vulnerable to under achievement, to reach their full potential. The amount of money is allocated according to the number of pupils on roll who are eligible for free school meals or have received free school meals in the past 6 years. Schools also receive funding for children who are looked after and children of service personnel.
At Twydall Primary we currently have 131 children on our Pupil Premium register.
