SPENDING on art resources in schools has fallen significantly in the past six years, a new report claims. The Artworks survey found infants schools spend pound;1.18 a year per child, junior schools just 11 pence more, while secondary pupils get pound;2.68 a year. Some schools are spending as little as 60p a year per child and more than a third of primaries depend on being given free materials. GCSE students are sometimes asked to buy their own materials.
