Motion text

That this House welcomes the decision to create a fairer funding formula for schools across the country; is concerned that, whilst funding for some local authorities schools will increase, other local authorities will see a reduction in schools funding; is further concerned that Coventry schools will face cuts of 2.4 per cent; regrets that this will leave schools in Coventry with a £26 million deficit by 2020 and that schools across the country will be left with a £3 billion deficit by 2020; is concerned that cuts on such a scale would hit staff numbers and impact on the standard of education provided to students not just in Coventry but across the country; and calls on the Government to reconsider its plans and to support an education system that will not see funding cut from any schools and that works for all children.
