School Funding

Talking about school funding outside Chesswood School - my number 1 issue at this election. Every primary school in East Worthing and Shoreham will get at least £3750 per pupil funding next year, rising to £4000, and every secondary school will get at least £5000 per pupil from next year.

I’m concerned about some of the misinformation being put round about school funding - indeed the Chair of the UK Statistics Authority has written to the Joint General Secretaries of the National Education Union (who are behind some of the figures you may have seen on some misleading leaflets) - questioning their methodology and recommending their ‘figures’ are clarified to reflect the true figures.
