Fairer schools funding formula – £1.3 billion boost to schools budget

This additional funding means every school in East Surrey will be guaranteed at least a 0.5% a year, per-pupil cash increase in 2018-19 and 2019-20.

This money also protects funding for those with additional needs and means every local authority is in a position to give all schools a cash increase through the new formula.

As a former Minister for school funding, I helped work on the fairer funding plans and believe that the new funding system is the right approach, finally putting an end to the post-code lottery.
