Education Funding

Volume 663: debated on Monday 22 July 2019

The petition of residents of the constituency of Colchester in Essex,

Declares that more money should be allocated to schools and colleges to ensure that every child in Colchester receives the education they deserve; notes that while Education funding has increased, the cost pressures on schools and colleges have increased at a faster rate and schools and colleges hare having to take difficult decisions that will impact on the education they are able to provide; further notes that schools need certainty of funding in order to set three year budgets.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to:

Allocate more money to schools and colleges.

Provide schools and colleges with at least a three year funding settlement to provide certainty.

And the petitioners remain, etc.—[Presented by Will Quince.]
