NAHT comments on school buildings funding announcement

Ahead of the Prime Minister’s planned announcement of a ten-year school rebuilding programme, Paul Whiteman, general secretary of school leaders’ union NAHT, said:

“We welcome the Prime Minister’s announcement that the future generation will benefit from investment to rebuild the dilapidated school estate. The funding increase promised to schools at the last general election, the £1bn catch-up fund announced last week, and the additional capital spending announced today now show that after a decade of under investment, the government is beginning to acknowledge that state education needs proper funding. Whilst we await the precise detail that will follow in the next spending review one thing is for sure – education must never be allowed to fall into such a perilous state again.”
