Schools: Finance

Question for Department for Education

UIN 912332, tabled on 6 September 2019

To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what plans the Government has to increase the level of funding for schools.

Answered on

We have committed an extra £14 billion to schools in England over the next three years. This will bring the schools budget to £52.2 billion in 2022-23. This will allow funding increases for all schools. In particular, every secondary school will receive a minimum of at least £5,000 per pupil next year, with every primary school getting a minimum of at least £4,000 from 2021-22. This is the largest cash boost in a generation and has only been possible because of our balanced approach to the public finances and careful stewardship of the economy since 2010.
