All schools ‘to face funding gap by 2020’

18-03-2017

Every state school in England will see budget cuts before 2020, even after new funding plans are put into place, research suggests.

It finds even schools benefiting from the funding shake-up will see their gains wiped out by budget pressures.

EPI chairman David Laws said a new funding formula was long overdue.

But he added: “As our analysis shows, however, the government may receive little credit from schools for these reforms – as even the schools benefiting from the new formula have their gains completely wiped out by other funding pressures.”

The report says: “There are unlikely to be any schools in England which will avoid a real terms cut in per pupil funding by 2019-20, even in areas benefiting from the new formula.”
