Schools funding increase

Evesham Editorial 23rd Dec, 2020   0

MORE than £300m in government funding has been shared between Worcestershire schools over the last two years.

The sum was shared by Worcestershire County Council which has seen a significant increase in the Schools Block Dedicated Grant.

It has risen from £314.6m in 2018-19 to £369.5m for 2021-22.

Earlier this month, the council debated the proposed National and Local Funding Arrangements for schools in 2021-22.

It was agreed this arrangement will continue into the next year, subject to confirmation of funding.

Councillor Marcus Hart, cabinet member with responsibility for education and skills, said: “Ensuring our schools have everything in place to help students reach their full potential will always be at the heart of every decision.”
