– Department for Education
“The current system for funding schools is unfair and out of date. We expect to publish details of our reforms shortly and we have already made a number of changes to the way schools are funded.
These changes ensure that schools are funded on a more consistent and transparent basis and give head teachers and governors a greater say in how they spend their money.”
Head teachers in Cambridgeshire are threatening to take the government to court if they don't get a fairer share of funding.
Cambridgeshire schools get less money per child than anywhere else in England, meaning schools have less to spend on teachers, books and school trips.
Head teachers say this has been going on for decades and is clearly unjust. So they are now investigating whether they are able to sue the government. Elodie Harper reports.
