School funding update - October 2017

  • By Hannah Barker

This briefing highlights key policy developments in revenue funding for schools, high needs funding and capital funding.

It highlights the main areas of focus for London Councils’ lobbying on school funding.

Our key asks of government are:

  1. That all children receive a good education – every child in the country deserves this.
  2. That the government invests £406 million to ensure that all schools in the country are fully funded to cope with the additional cost pressures. This is a vital investment that will pay dividends in improved national economic growth, productivity and innovation.
  3. That the government commits to upholding educational standards by fully reflecting the growing cost of education in London.
