The cash is an increase in the Pupil Premium funding, which targets extra money to schools depending on the number of children from disadvantaged backgrounds they have. It is a major Liberal Democrat priority that is being delivered by the Coalition Government.
In Milton and Waterbeach primary schools, 55 pupils are expected to be eligible, meaning that these schools are set to benefit from an extra £49,500 to support disadvantaged children.
Additionally, between Impington and Cottenham Village Colleges, 250 secondary school children are expected to be eligible bringing an extra £233,100 of funding.
See below for the full breakdown for each school.
The Pupil Premium covers any primary or secondary school pupil that has been registered for Free School Meals in the past six years. For 2013/14, the Premium will be worth £1.65bn, or £900 per pupil, in total.
