Pupil Premium

TWYFORD ST MARY’s C of E PRIMARY PUPIL PREMIUM

 

The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding given to schools so they can support their disadvantaged children and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.

The Pupil Premium was introduced in 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years, children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, children of service personnel, adopted children and children with guardians.

We are using our Pupil Premium Grant to improve outcomes for our most vulnerable learners. We are promoting inclusion through the promotion of pupil progress and provision of effective social and emotional support for disadvantaged pupils.
