The NSW government will give Wauchope Public School $1 million in 2017, an increase of almost 50 per cent on last year.

The additional needs based funding comes through the NSW government’s Resource Allocation Model.

Announcing it, Member for Oxley Melinda Pavey said the state government is delivering on its commitment to provide extraschool funding based on student need.

“These extra resources go directly to our Oxley schools allowing principals to better meet the unique needs of their students and the school community.”

Mrs Pavey says some schools in Oxley employ extra teachers with expertise to help students who need more support in key learning areas like literacy and numeracy.

John Baker from Wauchope Public School said the funding will be a wonderful addition to their resources.

In the past, the money has been used for a range of different programs for the enrichment of students through robotics, help for children with learning needs and maths and reading programs.

“Results are outstanding. The money will be used for social skills programs, teaching students to behave appropriately in different settings and releasing teachers to help pupils needing support,” he said.

The extra funding will also extend enrichment classes even further for 21stcentury learning, getting students involved in coding and understanding how computers work.

Mr Baker added: “It’s a significant amount of money and we’re very happy to receive it and know that it will make a difference for our kids.”

In NSW public schools, needs-based funding is distributed under the Resource Allocation Model (RAM), which uses information about student need to deliver resources where they are needed most.

Examples of local needs-based funding allocations in the Oxley electorate include:

Wauchope Public School will receive $1,027,251 in 2017,an increase of $333,803 or 48%.

Other schools to benefit are Melville High, Macksville Public School and Bellingen High.

Wauchope Public School is one of the largest primary schools in the Hastings with 700 pupils.
