Labour drives up funding per pupil
With plans for an extra pound;140 per pupil from April, miisters will be able to claim a 20 per cent rise per pupil by the next election.
Primary schools have been the biggest beneficiaries: this year they have been allocated pound;430 more per pupil than they were before the last election. By contrast, secondary schools have received a rise of pound;330. Despite this, secondaries still receive pound;650 more per pupil than primary schools.
