Joe Miller Welcomes Conservative's Cash Injection for Schools in Brighton Kemptown & Peacehaven

Conservatives are investing an extra £14 billion in schools.

This cash boost means that every secondary school will receive a minimum of £5,000 per pupil next year. And every primary school will get a minimum of £4,000 per pupil from 2021-22.

The investment will help to give all young people the same opportunities to succeed – regardless of where they grow up or go to school. And it will bring the schools budget to £52.2bn in 2023.

The Conservative's school funding boost will add £14 billion to schools’ budgets, so we can give more opportunities and support to pupils across the country.

Parliamentary candidate Joe Miller said:

"I will work to ensure every child gets the best possible start in life."

The investment is going into both primary and secondary schools. And Conservatives are following the National Funding Formula, which means that more money will go to schools that have been historically underfunded.

Conservatives have also pledged to meet the £4.5 billion requirement for teachers’ pensions from outside of the education budget. So every penny of the extra £14 billion will go straight to schoolsdelivering the best educational outcomes for our children.

We owe it to the next generation to ensure our education system is world class, and that nothing stands in the way of our young people having the best choices in life, whatever course they take.Longhill High School will receive a 1.84% increase in per pupil funding, meaning the school receives £5,758 for each child in 2020/21. Peacehaven Heights Primary School receives a 10.79% increase - meaning the school receives £5,408 for each child in 2020/21.

Part of the Conservative's school funding will also go towards children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). Conservatives will also provide £700 million extra for children with SEND, so that every pupil can access the education that is right for them. And nobody is held back from achieving their potential.

The extra funding will be delivered by 2020/2021.
