School funding formula needs review says MP, as all Warrington North schools lose out

21 Jan 2017
Helen Jones H&S Warrington North MP Helen Jones is calling on the government to review its new national funding formula for schools after figures, produced by the NUT, showed that every school in her constituency will lose out.

Helen Jones MP said:

"For years we have been told by the Tories that a new funding formula would benefit Warrington. Now we see that the opposite is the case.

"Secondary schools in Warrington North are losing up to £409 per pupil. Some primary schools are losing over £600 per pupil.

"This means that schools risk losing teachers or restricting the curriculum they offer. This is an outrageous attack on our children’s future.

"Theresa May talks about social mobility but the best engine of social mobility is a good education and her government refuses to invest in Warrington North’s children. Instead of wasting time thinking about more grammar schools the government should be funding our current schools properly."
