Delight as Fairer schools funding commitment makes Tory manifesto

"I am delighted that on page 34 of the manifesto, there is a clear commitment from the next Conservative government for fairer schools funding.

 

We have been campaigning for years to get this. For children in Leicestershire, it could mean an extra £20.5 million per year for our schools. We still await the finer detail, but if this funding is incorporated into the baseline schools grant, it is fantastic news."

 

Ivan Ould added, "I'd like to thank Nicky Morgan for the hard work behind the scenes she has been doing to get this into the manifesto. Every time I see her, I have pressed the case for fairer funding. Now we seem to have got it."
