The Government has announced that every school is set to receive £5,000 per pupil in funding for secondary schools next year after a decade of austerity.
The announcement is the first stage of what is billed as a £14bn boost for primary and secondary schools over the next three years.
The Department for Education’s also said that primary schools will also receive £3,750 per pupil, rising to £4,000 the following year.
‘We are delivering on our promise to level up funding to make sure every school receives more money for every child in the classroom,’ said school standards minister Nick Gibb.
‘Investing an additional £2.6bn next year and an additional £7.1bn a year by 2022-23 is an investment in the education and future of our young people and the dedicated teachers and staff who support them.’
The announcement comes after a decade of cuts to school funding.
According to the website School Cuts, 83% of schools in England will have less money next year than in 2015.
The National Education Union (NEU) has also warned that just 18 out of 533 constituencies would receive real terms per pupil funding increases next April, compared with 2015.
