Sir John Whittingdale MP strongly welcomes the Government’s recent announcement that schools in England are being allocated £60bn of funding, in 2024-2025, taking funding to its highest ever level in history. Mainstream schools will now receive an average of around £6,000 per pupil, ensuring that every child will benefit from a world class education.
This extra funding can be used for staff salaries, school running costs, educational trips and classroom equipment.
Sir John said:
“I am very pleased that schools in my constituency will benefit from the increase in education funding announced by the Government. I am proud of the excellent schools in our constituency, and I know that increasing costs have made things difficult this academic year. I am sur that this extra money will make a real difference in helping teachers in their jobs, and giving students the quality education they deserve.”
