Our proposals for funding reform will mean that schools will, for the first time, receive a consistent and fair share of the schools budget, so that they can give every child the opportunity to reach their full potential.

For Warrington, the proposals would mean an overall increase in schools funding of 0.6%. On high needs, Warrington would be protected at current funding levels. Warrington North constituency would see a 0.9% increase in funding for its schools.

The current consultation is open until 22 March, and we are keen to hear views from as many schools, governors, local authorities and parents as possible. We will publish our response to the consultation, including details of representations received, in due course.
