Mansfield Schools In Line For Funding Boost

20th September 2017
News, Mansfield
Mansfield's MP Ben Bradley (pictured with Education Secretary Justine Greening) has celebrated the news that a new Government funding plan gives increased funding to every Mansfield School. According to provisional figures from the National Funding Formula local schools would receive an average increase of 4% to their overall budgets, whilst 'per pupil' funding also rises significantly. 
 
Mr Bradley said "this is brilliant news and shows exactly why this Funding Formula is so important. Right now lots of schools get more funding per pupil than Mansfield schools do, which simply isn't fair on our kids, and the Government want to rectify that. Some schools could see up to a 10% funding increase which would be an amazing support to those schools, their teachers and of course the students."
 
"Sometimes our schools have historically not been rated too highly but they are moving in the right direction, and this funding would be a big boost. If we can offer our young people people a great start in life then the whole town will benefit. Great schools are one of those big factors that can attract people to want to come and live, work and invest in Mansfield. I'll be pressing the Government to crack on and confirm this funding as soon as possible."
