County steps up campaign for fairer funding for schools

Have your say

A campaign to secure a fairer system of funding for Cambridgeshire’s schools continues as the county’s schools receive their draft budgets for 2013-14.

As a result of national changes, some primary and secondary schools in the county will see significant reductions in their budgets compared with the previous year.

The main reason for the changes is that the Government is moving from a local formula for funding – developed with Cambridgeshire Schools Forum to reflect the circumstances of the county’s schools – to a nationally prescribed formula with limited local flexibility.
