Marco Longhi MP welcomes new Government funding to improve our schools across Dudley North.

Dudley North MP, Marco Longhi has welcomed the Government’s announcement of an additional investment of £14bn in Education, across three years. This will help deliver the Conservative Parties relentless drive to secure the highest standards in every aspect of our education system, supporting early years providers, schools and colleges to ensure that all children have the opportunity to thrive.

Dudley North is set to receive £62,992.548 for 2020/21 as part of this funding to help provide high standards throughout the school system and enable local authorities such as Dudley Council to do more to ensure they leave no stone unturned, and no place left behind, in the pursuit of the best opportunities for our young people.

This funding ensures local authorities are resourced to ensure the highest standards in education.

This welcome funding will provide children in Dudley North with high-quality creative and cultural education, including giving pupils the best chance to enjoy an active start in life.

“This funding commitment will ensure we are on target for every primary school to receive at least £4,000 per pupil and every secondary to receive at least £5,000 per pupil.”
