The Government has announced that schools in some of the least fairly funded local areas in the country will benefit from a £390 million cash boost in the biggest step towards fairer schools funding in a decade.
The schools budget in Buckinghamshire will increase by £18m. Schools in Wycombe should see their per pupil funding increase by £264.
There has long been an unfairness in the funding system which meant that local schools were not receiving the funding they deserved. This cash boost will help to improve the quality of education for all children in Wycombe as part of the Government’s long-term plan to raise the level of skills in our country.
