Schools need better funding in 2018

Lib Dem Councillors in Cambridgeshire have renewed their call for better funding for Cambridgeshire schools as a County Council report admits increasing problems.

Before Christmas, the Lib Dems proposed that the County Council lobby the government to improve local funding but the Conservatives rejected the idea.

A recent County Council report admits:

"Schools continue to be under significant financial pressure. In order to manage within the available funding some schools are likely to still need to undertake some form of restructuring to set balanced budgets over the next three years."

“In 2018 Cambridgeshire schools need a better deal if we are to give children a proper start in life,” said Lucy Nethsingha, Leader of the Lib Dem group.
