Petition More real term funding for schools, based on a per pupil funding formula

The government is imposing real term funding cuts on schools by freezing per-pupil funding while inflation and cost of employer pension and national insurance contributions increase. This affects all schools and academies alike. Without further funding schools will lose £3bn in real terms by 2020.

Average primary school cut is £87,000 or £339 per pupil.
Average secondary cut is £405,000 or £477 per pupil.
