School funding allocations

New figures published today (11 October), show how much money is being allocated to schools and local authorities in England next year – with every school getting more money for every child.

The Education Secretary was this morning interviewed by Good Morning Britain, Radio 4 Today, BBC Breakfast, Sky Sunrise, LBC and Talk Radio. He was clear that next year, every secondary school will receive a minimum of £5,000 per pupil, and every primary school will be able to receive a minimum of £4,000 from 2021-22. The biggest increases will go to the schools that need it most.

This follows the Prime Minister’s announcement in August that the budget for schools and high needs would be increased by a total of over £14 billion over three years, rising to £52.2 billion by 2022-23.

During the media interviews, the Education Secretary was asked why schools will not receive the uplift in funding until next year. This is because school budgets for the current financial year were set at the last spending review.

We have published provisional allocations today based on a £2.6bn increase in funding next year, and schools will receive final budgets from local authorities early next year. We will confirm how the funding for the subsequent two years will be allocated in due course.

This will give schools more certainty over their budgets, allowing them to plan ahead to deliver a world-class education.

Secretary of State for Education Gavin Williamson said:

Our schools do a brilliant job and I want parents and teachers to know that we’ve listened to them and are investing in our children’s futures. That’s why this Government has announced the biggest funding boost for schools in a decade which will give every school more money for every child - with the biggest increases going to the schools that need it most.

I recognise the pressures schools have faced and want them and parents to be safe in the knowledge that all children can get the top-quality education they deserve in classrooms across the country. Our continuing investment in education, coupled with a bold reform agenda and the work of Ofsted will supercharge the ongoing rise in school standards.
