Motion text

That this House welcomes the decision to create a fairer funding formula for schools across the UK; is concerned that whilst funding for some local authority schools will increase, other local authorities will see a reduction in school 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 £29 million deficit by 2020 and that schools across the UK 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 UK; and calls on the Government to reconsider its plans and to fund an education system that will not see funding cut from any schools and that works for all children.
