Tory councils warn on school funding

The BBC has reported that many councils have written to the PM about school funding…

More than a dozen Conservative councils have written to Prime Minister Theresa May to warn of their “alarm” at inadequate school funding in England.

They are part of a cross-party group of councils with low levels of funding.

The councils question whether the funding formula should allocate so much towards additional needs, such as for schools with high levels of deprivation or pupils with English as a second language.

And they say all schools need a guaranteed basic level of funding to cover essential costs such as staffing.
