Chancellor Sajid Javid said he and the prime minister have asked for a one-year spending round to be completed in September, instead of a lengthier exercise, in a bid to free up departments. Tes reports
The Treasury told Tes that school funding for the 2019-20 school year had already been set, and the spending review would be looking at the 2020-21 school year.
In a statement, the Treasury said the review “will support the commitments made by the prime minister since he came to office”, adding that this includes “his ambition for additional funding for schools”.
