MP hails school cash boost for Warrington

First published in News

WARRINGTON South MP David Mowat has welcomed the news that Warrington schools are set to receive an additional £400,000 for the 2015 to 2016 school year to tackle the funding deficit in the town.

Last month, Mr Mowat blasted schools minister David Laws for failing to give Warrington additional funds.

Mr Mowat said: “I’m delighted that the Government has changed its mind, as a result of my lobbying, and that our schools will be getting this extra cash.

“However we are still just applying sticking plasters to Labour’s unfair school funding formula. I’ve been calling for a national school funding formula for some time now and I hope that one will be introduced soon.

“Our children deserve the best possible start in life and Warrington schools are already doing a fantastic job of giving children the skills they need to succeed. This extra money will mean even more children getting a great education.”
