Secondary Education: Standards

Mr. Laws: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families (1) which schools which were part of the National Challenge in 2008 did not receive any additional funding as part of the programme; and if he will make a statement; [256901]

(2) which schools achieved less than 30 per cent. of pupils achieving five GCSEs at grades A* to C, including English and mathematics, in (a) 2008 and (b) 2007 and have not received any additional funding through the National Challenge; and if he will make a statement. [256902]

Jim Knight: Schools in 2007 or 2008 where fewer than 30 per cent. of the pupils achieved five GCSEs at A* to C grade or equivalent, including GCSEs in English and mathematics receive support from a range of sources. If they are in London, the Black Country or Greater Manchester any support will come from the City Challenge

programmes. In the rest of the country, support is provided by the National Challenge. All schools which become academies receive support from the Academies programme.

The support for all these schools is a mix of funding to local authorities and schools, together with support in kind. Some schools which were below the floor target in 2007 or 2008 are not receiving any of this additional support. They are listed in the following tables together with the reasons for this. In the vast majority of cases it is because they have moved above the floor target and are on a sustainable path of further improvement. In these cases there was local agreement that they did not need this additional support.
