Karen Buck – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Education

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Karen Buck on 2016-02-03.

To ask the Secretary of State for Education, if she will rank primary schools in each London borough by the proportion of children who are eligible for the purpose of determining the pupil premium; and what type each such school is.

Mr Sam Gyimah

Information on the number of pupils eligible for the pupil premium is available in the final school level pupil premium allocations, which are published on the department’s website.[1] These figures can be used with the total number of pupils in each school (information which can also be found in the same publication) to calculate the proportion eligible for the pupil premium.
