Devon: Schools Get An Extra £16 Million In Funding
Devon is currently the 6th lowest funded area for schools in the country, and has now been awarded an extra £16 million in government funding from April 2015.
The news was announced by Schools Minister David Laws.
We have been trying to do more with less because of hidden charges like transport costs and because of the rural location of some schools meaning low pupil numbers.
But that will now end and the fairer funding system will mean an extra £189 per pupil or a 4.5% increase.
Devon is one of the top five gainers in the country and will make a big difference funding extra teachers and/or classroom assistants.
Newton Abbot MP Anne Marie Morris has been campaigning for a fairer system for year's, she's delighted by the outcome: "A fair system which properly reflects the cost of running a good school."
"And now schools will not feel that they are being stretched."
