Pupil Premium - more money for local schools next year

The Government's announced the figures for the Pupil Premium (thats extra money going to schools with pupils with disadvantaged backgrounds).  It's worked out based on whether the pupil has been registered for Free School Meals at any time in the last six years.

The money has increased next year and is set to do the same in 2014/15.

Here are the published amounts for some of our South Liverpool schools.

Banks Road Primary, £96,300
Booker Avenue Infants £26,100
Booker Avenue Juniors £53,100
Enterprise South Liverpool Academy  £443,700
Garston Church of England Primary £51,300
Gilmour Infants £27,000
Gilmour Juniors £41,400
Parklands High School £227,700
St Austins Catholic Primary School £61,200

Schools in Liverpool  get between them £22,377,000

The Pupil Premium was one of the key points in the Lib Dem election manifesto in 2010.
