SCHOOLS in North Devon will get at least an extra �672,520 next year to help the most disadvantaged children, according to Children’s Minister Sarah Teather.
From April, every school in England will get �430 for each child in their school who is entitled to free school meals.
More details of the new “Pupil Premium” were unveiled by the Government yesterday (Monday).
Each year, between now and 2015, the amount spent will rise to a national total of �2.5billion.

“This is money on top of what is already being allocated for schoolchildren – no school will lose money as result of the Pupil Premium,” said Ms Teather.
“And it will be given to head teachers to spend at their discretion on what they think works best for their school – be it extra one to one classes, breakfast clubs or after-school clubs.”
