The Government has announced a £2.2bn increase in core funding for schools next year in England.
The funding allocations published by the Department for Education show that most local local authorities will see increases of more than 3% in the funding allocated per pupil.
Every school is set to receive the new minima of £5,150 per-pupil funding for secondary schools next year, and £4,000 for primaries. Extra funding for small and remote schools is increasing by more than 60% next year through the national funding formula.
School standards minister, Nick Gibb, said: ‘This three-year school boost is part of our commitment to level up outcomes and opportunities, giving the biggest increases to schools that have historically received lower levels of funding.
’It builds on the significant support we have introduced to help the most disadvantaged pupils, including our £1bn COVID catch up fund to tackle the impact of lost teaching time as a result of the pandemic.’
