Following requests from MPs that the government offer fairer funding to schools around the country, the government has now completed its review. It agrees that our local schools were getting less than a fair share.
As a result, Wokingham Borough schools will in future receive £700,000 a year more, and West Berkshire schools £400,000.
John Redwood welcomed this change, saying ” Wokingham and West Berkshire schools have received less per pupil than many other parts of the country for many years. This modest but helpful increase is welcome, easing the pressures a little on schools budgets.”
