English schools to get three-year £14bn funding boost
Figure is in line with leaked draft education strategy that included behaviour crackdown
The government has announced a £14bn cash injection over three years for England’s schools, setting out a key aspect of the chancellor’s plans before next Wednesday’s spending review.
The funding boost is in line with the new education strategy leaked to the Guardian this week, with £2.6bn for schools in 2020/21, compared with £2.8bn in the draft document. The additional funding will then increase to £4.8bn in 2021-22 and £7.1bn in 2022-23.
