MP welcomes additional £1.9m funding for Medway schools

Mark Reckless MP has welcomed the Government’s announcement that schools in Medway will receive £1.9 million extra funding in 2015/16 to address a historic unfairness in the way school funding is allocated.

This money is part of a proposed £350 million boost to the most underfunded local authorities. It represents a huge step towards removing the unfairness in the school funding system.

Responding to the news, Mark Reckless said:

“The school funding system which we inherited from Labour is unfair and resulted in pupils attracting very different levels of funding without good reason.

“As part of our long-term economic plan we are determined to deliver the best schools and skills for our young people so that they can get the skills they need to get on in life. This announcement is great news for Medway as it represents a huge step towards removing the unfairness in the school funding system.”
