Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg giving Sutton schools £154,078 extra funding for disadvantaged children

This Is Local London: Sutton schools are to be given £154,078 extra funding for disadvantaged children Sutton schools are to be given £154,078 extra funding for disadvantaged children

Schools are to be given more than £150,000 in extra funding to help them support children from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has introduced the pupil premium as studies show children from less well-off families often fall behind by the time they reach the school gates.

Sutton is being given £154,078 so schools can provide intensive support, extra tutoring or other activities to help them catch up with their peers.

Mr Clegg said: "In a modern, fair society I want every child to have the best opportunity to get on in life, regardless of their background.

"That’s why I introduced the pupil premium - extra money for schools to support each student from a disadvantaged background to make sure that they catch up with others in their class."

What is "disadvantaged"? The working family struggling to pay private rent, put food on the table, and praying for uni scholarships for their hard working child or those with free/cheap housing who sit back and do nothing for the money they are given whilst planning bi-yearly foreign holidays. No help for the previous as always I'm sure.

£154,078 divided by how many schools in the borough and equally how many disadvantaged children. This sort of token gesture from a man who blatantly lied to the electorate at the last general election, student loans etc...., will barely buy a pencil each. Pathetic. And, as previous comments quite rightly question, who or what classifies a disadvantaged child. Build more schools and pay top dollar for the people who will shape our chilldrens and our countries future, you moron Cleeg.

No help either for the elderly and disabled being asset stripped by councils on the orders of the coalition for their essential care
