In the previous Parliament we allocated an extra £10.5 million to Suffolk for its schools, in the biggest step forward in fairer funding in a decade. We are protecting the schools budget in this Parliament, so that it rises with pupil numbers. We have already ensured that the extra funding for under-funded areas from 2015-16, including the £10.5 million for Suffolk, will be included in budgets for 2016-17. We are committed to going further in ensuring funding for schools in Suffolk is allocated according to need and will bring forward plans after the Spending Review.
