The amounts that schools will receive under the pupil premium have been announced.
I have yet to examine the amounts for all Blyth Schools, but the ones that hit me are:-
Bede Academy £253,800 (282 pupils )
Blyth Community College £394, 650 (439 pupils )
Newsham Primary £129,600 ( 144 pupils )
The cash targets extra money to schools depending on the number of children from disadvantaged backgrounds they have.
I'm sure that the money is most welcome, and will be useful, in all the schools in Northumberland and England.
A total of £1.65 billion has been allocated for 2013/14 .
