MP welcomes huge school funding increases

11th October 2019

Worcestershire schools will all get budget increases for next year following a £14 billion Government funding commitment.

Some schools will get as much as a 40 per cent funding increase as part of the deal and the average increase topping six per cent.

The Department for Education today wrote to West Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin confirming the figures which will see county schools get nearly £55 million from next September – an increase of £3.3 million.

Worcestershire is also getting £2.5 million over the next two years for pupils with extra needs – nationally the extra funding will total £101.9 million.

Harriett commented: “I was delighted to see the Government making progress on delivering a fairer funding deal for county schools and this is a really heartening announcement.

“Our primary and secondary schools do an amazing job and I am sure that teachers and parents will join me in welcoming this great news.

“Fairer funding was one of my top election pledges and I am delighted that we’ve been able to make some substantial progress on this key local issue.”
