The Pupil Premium – money that will be paid to academies for each disadvantaged child that they teach, has been widely criticized because there is no way of ring fencing it to ensure it reaches the children it is intended for.
This is indicative of the lack of thought and planning that has accompanied the academies bill from its inception to being made law today.
There is no real detail to direct how these very considerable payments from the public purse will be managed. Good idea, but how will it work?
