Pupil Premium

What is it?

Publicly-funded schools in England get extra funding from the government to help them improve the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils.

Evidence shows that children from disadvantaged backgrounds:

  • Generally face extra challenges in reaching their potential at school.
  • Often do not perform as well as their peers.

The Pupil Premium Grant is designed to allow schools to help disadvantaged pupils by improving their progress and the exam results they achieve.

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding to disadvantaged pupils at Hawthorn Primary School.
