Additional Covid funding offers a glimmer of hope for schools, says NAHT

The Department for Education has today (Friday 27 November) announced a fund which is designed for schools and colleges facing significant funding pressure due to Covid-19.

Paul Whiteman, general secretary of school leaders’ union NAHT, said: “At the end of a tough week for education, here is a glimmer of hope for some schools. The government has finally responded to the clear pressure that school leaders have been facing and provided some financial assistance for the spiralling costs of covid. We would like to see the government go further, and our continuing discussions with them will focus on this in the coming weeks.”
