GBP14 billion boost to schools in UK

By ITS Education Asia


The Independent reports that Boris Johnson has pledged GPB14 billion into education over the next three years. Johnson promises a rise of GBP2.6 billion for 20-21, GBP4.8 billion for 21-22, and GBP7.1billion for 22-23. An extra £700m will also be allocated for children with special educational needs and disabilities (Send) amid concerns these pupils have been left without suitable provision. The cash injection comes after an Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) analysis found that schools have faced budget cuts of 8 per cent since 2010.

The UK Government states that secondary schools will receive a minimum of £5,000 per pupil next year, with every primary school getting a minimum of £4,000 per pupil from 2021-22, and £1.5bn each year will be put into teachers’ pensions.

There are some that doubt the government’s ability to meet these goals and these top numbers are not the only factor in determining education quality on the UK state sector. But many state schools do deliver a high quality education and many get outcomes better than their private counterparts so well worth following even for international students.
