There is a government promise over cash for Cornish schools.

MPs claim every pupil in the Duchy gets around £350 less from the treasury than others up country.

The Education Secretary insists calls for fairer funding in rural areas are being heard.

Speaking after the question time in the Commons, Dan Rogerson said:


“As a Liberal Democrat I am pleased to see that the Coalition is prioritising extra money for those children who need it the most, wherever they are in the country, in the form of the Pupil Premium.

“But when it comes to the wider system of school funding, schools here in Cornwall have traditionally been chronically underfunded, with per pupil funding being approximately £350 lower than the national average under the last Labour and Conservative governments.

“That is why I have been pressing the Government to make sure that when they are looking at changing how schools are funded they need to consider a more transparent and fairer system, which properly reflects areas of greatest need, whether that be in urban areas or rural ones like ours.”
