Commenting on the latest announcement from the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson on school funding, Dr Mary Bousted, joint general secretary of the National Education Union, said:

The Government’s rhetoric is excellent, it is a pity the reality for the vast majority of schools does not match it. From the start of the next financial year in April 83% of schools will have lower real terms per pupil funding  than they did in 2015. In addition, a third of schools will have even less per pupil next year than this in real terms.
