Significant Funding Boost For North Yorkshire Schools

Significant Funding Boost For North Yorkshire Schools

Filey's MP says there will be a significant funding boost for North Yorkshire’s schools.

Kevin Hollinrake announced that the Government has confirmed total per pupil funding available for schools in his constituency.

Ebor Academy in Filey is set to receive a 1.84% increase for a notional national funding formula of £5,834 per pupil in 2020-21.

Filey Church of England Nursery and Infants Academy are set to get a 5.03% boost to £4,340 per pupil and Filey Junior School a 5.65% boost to £4,342 per pupil.

Hunmanby Primary School is set to receive 4.31% increase - £4,226 per pupil.

Kevin Hollinrake MP said:

“This is excellent news; more children across North Yorkshire will be able to access a world-class education thanks to a major funding boost by the Conservative Government.

The commitment that every secondary school pupil will receive a minimum of £5,000 next year and every primary school pupil will receive a minimum of £4,000 by 2021-22 will reassure parents of the Government’s promise to deliver the best for their children."

This funding follows the Prime Minister’s announcement in August that the budget for schools and high needs would be increased by a total of over £14 billion over three years, rising to £52.2 billion by 2022-23.

Schools and local authorities found out today how the first part of that investment - £2.6 billion - will be allocated for the coming year.

The extra money, available from April, will ensure that per-pupil funding for all schools can rise at least in line with inflation and will deliver promised gains in full for areas which have been historically under-funded.

The extra funding will continue the move towards a fairer funding formula, which Mr Hollinrake has campaigned for strongly.

Since becoming an MP he has met with ministers and written to them to highlight the discrepancies between rural and urban schools.

Mr Hollinrake has previously made the case that a fairer funding formula is needed to ensure schools in towns and villages across North Yorkshire get the resources they deserve.

Mr Hollinrake said:

“The Department for Education is working to better the system for the future and I shall continue my fight for fairer funding for parents, teachers and pupils in my constituency”.
