Fairer Funding in our Schools

Gillian has worked to ensure our schools have extra funding, after decades of historic underfunding.

Gillian lobbied the Secretary of State for Education and the Minister for Schools for further investment many times. Recently the Government announced £14 billion more for schools. Our schools will be receiving £4,416 per pupil at primary and £5,160 at secondary from 2020-21, which is a significant increase.
