Here is our summary of the Autumn Statement announcements for schools and the education sector:
Whilst the promise to build 100 new free schools was made, the announcement on schools funding will unfortunately do nothing for the vast majority of schools and sixth form colleges facing significant cuts to their budgets. The 1% public sector pay increase announced for next year is also unlikely to favour well. However, the Academy school take-up has gained significant momentum giving schools more control over their budgets.
