“Disappointing” delay to schools funding formula

Commenting on news that implementation of the National Funding Formula for schools has been delayed, Voice General Secretary Deborah Lawson said: 

“This delay is disappointing, but it is essential to get the outcome right. 

“We welcome the opportunity for full and thorough consultation on a new formula. 

“Schools must have the capacity to deal with fluctuations in funding resulting from the introduction of the formula. 

“Regardless of how funding is distributed in the future, schools need an increase in funding as a matter of urgency.

“We look forward to the promised plans for a national funding formula for early years.”
