This is the truth about the funding injection into schools.
I have asked DCC Finance what it means for Devon, will confirm as soon as I have heard.
In essence, I approve of funding being being moved from the free school budget which is costing us billions, however, far more funding is needed to recompense schools for the cumulative hardship they have faced for many years now….
Our own schools in East Devon are struggling horribly to make ends meet after seven years of austerity and a new funding formula imposed by the Conservative government. This is set to be implemented next year and will mean even more hardship for local schools which are already at the bottom of the funding league table.
