Secretary of State's letter on fairer school funding published

4 November 2015

The Education Committee has published a letter from the Secretary of State for Education, the Rt Hon Nicky Morgan MP, on the subject of fairer funding for schools.

The Secretary of State's letter confirms that the Department for Education intends to consult on proposals to make funding fairer, and that the Committee will be able to examine these early in early 2016.

Chair's comment

Neil Carmichael, Chair of the Education Committee, said:

"It is widely acknowledged that the existing school funding model needs to change. I'm grateful for the Secretary of State's indication that the Government's consultation on school funding is likely to emerge in the New Year. As a Committee we take a keen interest in this matter and will want to examine the Government's proposals at an early date."
