School funding increase for Lewes

The government has announced National Funding Formula allocations for schools for the 2021/22 year, seeing a funding increase for all schools in Lewes.

Maria Caulfield MP has continued to lobby Ministers for increases in school funding for schools across her Lewes constituency. This lobbying has been successful as the latest figures show that the total funding for all schools across Lewes has increased by 3.8% to £50,785,099.

Average National Funding Formula (NFF) per pupil funding in 2021/22 is set to be £4,912, an average increase of 4.2%.

The School seeing the highest percentage change in pupil led NFF funding is Firle Church of England Primary School in Firle, which will see a 10.8% increase.

Maria Caulfield MP said “Education is so important as it set children up for the rest of their lives and can determine their future job and life chances from early on. This is why I have continued to press the government to give our local schools the funding that they need to provide a top quality education.”

“It is excellent that all schools across my Lewes constituency are again set to receive funding increases. I have written to each local school to set out the figures set by government. I hope that the East Sussex Schools Forum, who have the final say on funding, will allocate the funds accordingly.”
