The 20 ‘worst-hit’ areas for school funding

A new league table has been published that ranks constituencies by the size of the real-terms funding cuts schools are facing. Tes reports.

The figures, produced by the National Education Union, show 83 per cent of constituencies will see real terms cuts in per pupil funding in 2020 compared with 2015 – despite extra funding being announced by the government.

The union said the worst hit constituency, Dulwich and West Norwood, faces a £782 real terms per-pupil funding loss in April 2020, compared to 2015.
