Government has decided not to give our schools the resources they need – Angela Rayner

Angela Rayner MP, Shadow Sectary of State for Education, commenting on the Government’s School Revenue Funding Settlement published today, said:

“Today’s announcement simply confirms that the Conservatives will do nothing to reverse per-pupil funding cuts since 2015 or compensate schools for £2.7 billion in cuts to school funding.

"It is a source of national shame that the Government has decided not to give our schools the resources they need despite soaring class sizes, with teachers leaving the profession in record numbers and recruitment targets being missed.

"The next Labour government will reverse the cuts to school budgets and protect per-pupil funding in real terms, as we build a National Education Service that will create a country for the many, and not just the few.”
