Local Schools are getting more money thanks to the Lib Dem’s Pupil Premium. This year, Schools will get an extra £1300 for each child on free school meals.
Locally, for example, Bournville Junior school will get an extra £68,100 pupil premium this year, and Dame Elizabeth Cadbury Technology College will get £291,900.
The Lib Dems believe that no-one’s chances in life should be limited by their background. That’s why we’re giving schools more money to help close the gap in attainment between children from disadvantaged backgrounds and their peers. We are taking action to reduce inequality where it starts, so that everyone can get on in life.Leave a comment
