Goole schools benefit from £19k funding
May 12 2010
A number of schools in the town of Goole have shared a pot of £19,000 to buy extra books and resources, a local news report has said.
According to This is Hull and East Riding, the funding has been shared between ten local schools and two children's centres, including Boothferry primary school and Goole high school.
The extra cash came from money paid in taxes by migrants when they first came to the UK to work.
Yvette Fox, of the council's school improvement service, told the publication that some schools in the area have students who speak English as their second language and, given the nature of the funds available, "we opted to share the money between these schools to help them buy dual language and cultural heritage books, and teaching resources suited to the diverse cultural backgrounds of their pupils".
In other news, authorities in Stockton will spend more than £10 million over the next year to improve seven primary schools in the borough, according to the Evening Gazette.
