The issue of funding in schools is not as straightforward as we just do not get as much as elsewhere. I wrote to the Department of Education in October and November to demand an explanation and the key extracts are below:
Selaine Saxby, MP for North Devon, and Co-Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Cycling and Walking (APPGCW) secured a Westminster Hall debate on ‘Victims of road traffic offences and the criminal justice system’.
The Government has announced that more than 1,100 grassroots sports projects are to benefit from £93 million of funding, including new pitches, changing rooms, and floodlights, with North Devon set to benefit from £1,568 in funding.
The Government has announced the latest outcome of Wave 5 of the T Levels Capital Fund application round and PETROC in North Devon will now be delivering T Levels in Agriculture and Environmental & Animal Care.
Selaine Saxby MP has welcomed extra funding from the Conservative Government, providing schools in North Devon with £2,511,177 in extra funding, as part of £2 billion this year and next for primary schools and secondary schools in England.
