Millions More for Oxfordshire's Pupils

September 9, 2013 3:08 PM

As schools return for the new school-year, many that educate disadvantaged children will find extra cash available to help them. Cllr John Howson, Lib Dem spokesperson on Oxfordshire County Council pointed out the amount just four schools would receive this year through the Pupil Premium programme.

Windale School - £111,900 (£47,048)

East Oxford Primary School £116,100 (£44,408)

Oxford Spires Academy £232,050 (£68,808)

Oxford Academy £348,600 (£99,552)

The figure in brackets is the amount each school received through the programme in 2011.

Cllr. Howson said "'This programme helps to ensure scarce resources are targeted where they are most needed, unlike Labour's previous scattergun approach to spending."

He called on all parents eligible for free school meals to ensure that they were registered, to allow the schools to claim the maximum possible amounts through the programme that will see an increase again in 2014.

Schools with a large number of service children will benefit under a separate programme.
