School Funding

12th October 2019

James Cleverly met with the Head Teachers of the secondary schools in Braintree and discussed the 4.88% increase in per pupil funding.

He said:
“This new funding settlement, means that every secondary school pupil will receive a minimum of £5,000 next year and every primary school pupil will receive a minimum of £4,000 by 2021- 22. A good education in the foundation stone for a happy, fulfilled and prosperous life. This money will support the hard work of teachers to help give every child the best start in life.”
