Schools, more than ever, need to be at the forefront of our Governments thinking. We should not accept the idea that there can be winners or losers when it comes to our children’s futures.
We are investing in our children’s futures with the biggest funding boost for schools in a decade - £14 billion additional funding over the next three years – meaning more money for every child to receive a truly world-class education. For Lincolnshire this means £4,688 per pupil, an increase of 5.72%.
We have done more to free schools from central control than any previous government. I support our local grammar schools and want all headteachers to be given the freedom they need to run our excellent local Lincolnshire schools.
