Government’s reply to our lobbying for additional funding for Silkstone Primary School

Leave a comment

Further to previous blog posts on our school funding position which included copies of correspondence with Angela Smith MP,  yesterday we received a copy of the government’s formal response to Angela from Nick Gibb, Minister of State for School Standards.  A copy of his letter is attached.

Nick Gibb MP reply 210317

Unsurprisingly the letter offers no solution to our issues,  but does note that, following consultation on the National Funding Formula which has now closed, government expects to announce its final decisions on the Formula ahead of the summer recess (21 July 2017).  Whether this will include any change from the indicative 1.2% increase in our funding allocation remains to be seen….

We will of course continue to keep you updated.

In the meantime, have a wonderful Easter holiday and enjoy this truly fabulous weather.

Paul Hinchliffe

Chair of Governors
