School Funding News

Here are some recent news stories around the web regarding school funding:-

Children linked to care system to get boarding school chance

Children with links to the care system will be given the chance to attend independent and state boarding schools, the Department for Education announced.

The Boarding School Partnerships Information Service will see authorities work with children's charities to identify pupils who can be put forward for bursaries and scholarships.

The announcement builds on wider programmes to support vulnerable children in all schools, including named headteachers who are responsible for supporting their education and almost £2.5 billion funding this year for state schools to support them through the Pupil Premium.

Launching the new partnership, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for the School System Lord Agnew said: "Children who have previously been in care or are at risk of care have often gone through difficult, challenging experiences that can have a lasting impact throughout their lives.

Born in the wrong place for good schools?

There is a widening geographical divide in access to high-performing schools in England, says a report from the Education Policy Institute.

Between 2010 and 2015, London took an increasing share of the secondary schools where pupils were most likely to make good progress.

But the report says areas in the North and North East were being left behind.

A Department for Education spokeswoman said social mobility plans would help chances to be spread more evenly.

The report picks up on concerns about social mobility now being increasingly affected by where families live - with disadvantaged youngsters in London having a much better chance of going to good schools than similarly deprived pupils in other parts of the country.

David Laws, the think tank's chairman and a former education minister, said the widening inequality was "shocking".

In this study, "high-performing" schools are not those with the best exam results or rated as outstanding or good but those that are in the top third for how much progress pupils have made since starting secondary school.

Investment where profit means better schools

The worlds of bonds, investors and the financial markets might seem like a long way from the millions of the world's poor who never even get to see their children going to school.

But a project is trying to harness the money and energy of the financial markets to the delivery of higher standards of education.

It wants cash and compassion to go hand in hand.

The British Asian Trust is planning to raise $10m (£7.5m) for an "education development impact bond" in which investments are linked to specific targets in improving education for disadvantaged communities in India.

It's a project being supported by the British Asian Trust's founder, Prince Charles.
