Additional funding for Westfield schools delivered by LibDems

Liberal Democrats in the Coalition Government have given schools in York a £3.6 million Christmas present.

anti poverty stamp

The cash is the Pupil Premium funding, which targets extra money to schools depending on the number of children from disadvantaged backgrounds they have.

Local schools to benefit include:

• Westfield Primary Community School £167,400

• Hob Moor Community Primary School £109,800

• York High School £271,800 (the largest allocation in the City)

The Pupil Premium covers any primary or secondary school pupil that has been registered for Free School Meals in the past six years. For 2013/14, the Premium will be worth £1.65bn, or £900 per pupil, in total.

The Pupil Premium is a major Liberal Democrat priority that is being delivered by the Coalition Government. The Pupil Premium was one of four policy priorities that the Liberal Democrats put on the front page of their 2010 General Election manifesto. The others were: raising the point at which you start paying Income Tax to £10,000 to give people on low and middle incomes a £700 tax cut; creating jobs by making Britain greener; and measures to clean up politics. The Pupil Premium was one of the key measures argued for by Liberal Democrats during the Coalition negotiations. By 2015, it will be worth a total of £2.5bn a year to schools in England.

Direct schools grants in the City are also being increased from £106M to £110M.
