Funding

Funding icon.jpg

Schools are at breaking point as funding is not keeping up with the expenditure schools face. The government’s funding commitment for schools is not adequate and equates to a real-terms cut in education spending. The situation is critical for schools, so NAHT is campaigning to:

  • Make the case that funding settlement is insufficient
  • Ensure the government is aware of the pressure on the high needs block and that the necessary funding is secured for our most vulnerable young people
  • Lobby for adequate funding for the early years and that the long-term funding for maintained nursery schools is secured
  • Lobby for sufficient funding needs to be found to replace the Education Services Grant
  • Influence the implementation of the national funding formula
  • Secure a government commitment for auto-registration for free school meals
  • Minimise the impact on schools of the Apprenticeship Levy and support schools in accessing the funds.
