I’m delighted that the Government are investing the largest funding boost in a decade in our schools. Our children deserve the best education in Bloxwich, Willenhall and Walsall North.
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. This means schools across all of Walsall North will see a total budget of over £63 million; giving teachers, parents and pupils the certainty to plan and improve standards in our schools.
This is great news and there should be no winners or losers when it comes to our children's futures. Every parent should be confident that their children are getting the best education and can reach their full potential.
