Local MP, Daniel Kawczynski has welcomed the news that the Government has announced an extra £2.35 billion to create more school places.
This is in addition to the £5 billion that is already being spent in this parliament. This means that between 2014 and 2017 schools in Shropshire will receive £3,997.878. This is part of the Government’s long-term plan to give every young person the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
It is the first time that councils have had 3-year allocations of funding to spend on school places, so Shropshire Council can plan ahead and ensure every child has a school place. This Government has already created 260,000 new school places and this announcement means thousands more are on the way.
Daniel Kawczynski MP commented:
It is great news for young people in Shropshire that this Government has found billions of extra funding to ensure every child has a place at school so that they can fulfil their potential.
This is part of our long-term plan to create an education system that gives young people who want to work hard the skills they need to get on in life and have a more secure and better future.’
