Huppert welcomes biggest ever rise in Pupil Premium

July 19, 2013 12:40 PM

Cambridge youngsters are to benefit from the biggest ever rise in the Liberal Democrats' Pupil Premium.

The news that primary schools across the city will benefit from a share of an extra £564,800 next year has been welcomed by MP Julian Huppert.

"This money has been making a real difference in our schools," said Julian. "Head teachers have told me how much it helps pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds have a better chance at keeping up with their classmates so that they can move onto secondary school at the same level.

"It is so vital that we give these youngsters a good start so that they can make the most of their education and reach their potential."

Schools across Cambridge will receive £1,835,600 to be shared between 1,412 pupils in 2014/15. This figure compares to £1,270,800 for the current year.
