“Balancing school budgets is consistently the biggest challenge facing school governors/ trustees. With three in four boards telling us that they cannot manage funding pressures without adversely impacting the education of pupils in their school, we welcome in principle any additional funding which eases the pressure on school budgets. However, this investment in education must be new money and we will be scrutinising the detail of this announcement to ensure that governing boards really are going to be able to begin to reverse the many difficult decisions that they have had to make over the past few years."
