Amanda welcomes increased school funding

Amanda Milling, Member of Parliament for Cannock Chase, has welcomed a £54,177,110 Government investment in schools across Cannock Chase – the largest funding boost in a decade.

The Cannock Chase MP has long championed the value of a good education and the new funding figures released by the government see an increase of per pupil funding to ensure that all schools have the right investment to deliver an outstanding education for all.

Amanda Milling MP said: “The cash boost will mean that all secondary schools in Cannock Chase will receive more than £5,000 per pupil and primary schools will see an average of £4,222 for every pupil next year. The Conservative Manifesto in the 2019 General Election committed £5,000 per secondary school pupil and £3,750 per primary school pupil (rising to £4,000 the year after), so we are beating the manifesto pledge.”

To ensure that schools fully benefit the Government will set regulations later this month to ensure local authorities pass on these minimum per pupil funding levels to schools. As well as supporting the lowest funded schools, this marks an important step towards a ‘hard’ national funding formula – where schools’ budgets are set on the basis of a single, national formula.

Amanda Milling MP added: “Every child deserves to receive a superb education - regardless of which school they attend, or where they grew up and I am delighted that schools right across Cannock Chase will be seeing a budget of over £54 million giving teachers, parents and pupils the certainty to plan, and supercharging standards in our schools. This funding will make sure that every parent in Cannock Chase can be sure their children are getting a world class education that is right for them.”
