23 local primary schools get funding boost

A number of primary schools across Rutland and Melton have been given some Government funding, with some getting the maximum amount of just over £56,000.


The funding was given as part of the National Funding Formula’s (NFF) sparsity factor.

The NFF aims to account for the particular challenges faced by small schools in rural areas by providing specific funding. In addition to this, the Government has already committed £2 billion for schools this year, as well as the highest pay increase for teachers in 30 years.

Rutland and Melton MP Alicia Kearns said: "We are very fortunate to have so many wonderful local schools serving our rural communities. However rurality also presents additional challenges, and I am pleased that the National Funding Formula (NFF) now recognises these challenges, ensuring these schools have the same opportunities to grow as any school in more urban settings.


"This funding will ensure that our schools have even more support to give our children access to the very best education they deserve, no matter where they live."
