Schools’ spending per pupil will drop by 2.25% according to the Financial Times
by Alec Patton
After the Comprehensive Spending Review, the Financial Times reported that
The schools resource budget, which covers day-to-day running costs, will rise in real terms by 0.4 per cent. But a rise in the number of pupils will mean current spending per pupil will be cut by 2.25 per cent.
This is because of a ‘mini-baby boom’ during the early 2000s which means there are more students entering primary schools.
