Working hard for Wakefield

Mary Creagh condemns Government's school funding plans

This week, Mary spoke in Parliament on the Government’s new National Funding Formula for schools. She condemned the Government for missing the opportunity to redress the inequalities of education, which has left Wakefield historically underfunded for too long. Every school in Wakefield will lose funding under the Government's plans. Funding in Wakefield per pupil is projected to fall from £4,726 in 2015/16, to £4,211 in 2019/20, a cut of 11%.
