Lilian raised the issue of School Funding in her question to the Prime Minister today.
The Prime Minister is in denial. Today’s report from the Institute for Fiscal Studies confirms that schools are already facing”the largest cut in school spending per pupil over a 4 year period since at least the early 1980s”, and that, as a result of her new national formula, funding is being diverted from schools with very high levels of deprivation. Every single school in my constituency will lose an average of £584 per pupil. Has the Prime Minister failed at maths, or failed to read her own manifesto?
