In July, the Department announced that an additional £1.3 billion will be invested in core schools and high needs funding across 2018/19 and 2019/20, in addition to the schools budget set at spending review 2015. This additional investment in core schools funding will be funded in full from efficiencies, savings and emerging underspends from within the Department's budget.
