More Funding For Local Schools

In October 2019 the Government announced an increase of 4.83% in funding per pupil in this area. Every school in Telford and Wrekin will receive a funding increase.

I have long argued for village schools in rural areas to receive fair funding, so I am delighted by this significant financial boost for Shropshire schools.  The extra funds will also target those schools which need the most support, so parents can be sure their children are getting a world class education regardless of their background.
