Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

An email from Lynne Featherstone


I wanted to let you knowthegood news about the extra funding local schools in your area will receive from this June. An increase in the Pupil Premium will mean Haringey’s schools will receive £3.5million more than last year – that’s £8.8.million in total for 2012/13.

Recently it has become clear that some of our schools face real challenges and I hope that this extra funding will make a difference by providing head teachers with the resources to improve all our schools.

It is right that the Pupil Premium is targeted at those schools and communities that need it the most and face the most challenging circumstances. Throughout the country Pupil Premium money is being put to good use by head teachers to provide children with additional tuition, better IT resources and help to work closer with parents.

All schools in Haringey will benefit.

Below is a list of the schools in your local area and the amount of Pupil Premium they will receive:

· Hornsey School for Girls will get £385,200
· Highgate Wood Secondary School will get £270,000
· Fortismere School will get £124,800
· Rokesly Junior School will get £78,600
· Coleridge Primary School will get £60,000
· Rokesly Infant School will get £44,400
· St. Gilda’s RC Junior School will get £29,400
· St. Peter-in-Chains RC Primary School will get £15,600

Every year I visit schools across Hornsey and Wood Green and I know how valuable this extra help will be.

Kind regards,

p .s. Despite years of Labour and Tory governments rhetoric on education Haringey’s schools still receive less education funding per pupil than our neighbouring boroughs. We are continuing our fight to get Fair Funding – sign our petition here: http://campaigns.libdems.org.uk/fairfunding
