Schools in Wirral will receive £20 million in extra funding this year, as part of a £4 billion funding boost from the Conservative Government across the country.
Funding per pupil will increase nationally by five per cent, over and above inflation, giving significant increases for every pupil in every school.
A record £1 billion extra will be spent to support pupils with special educational needs and disabilities, so that all young people can reach their full potential.
Councillor Ian Lewis has welcomed the news that schools in Wallasey will receive a share of the Borough's extra £20 million. School spending in Wirral is set to reach £299 million.
The £20 million in extra funding can use for hiring specialist teachers, providing training, and purchasing school supplies including textbooks.
Every primary school in Wallasey will receive at least £4,362 per pupil, and every secondary school at least £5,669 per pupil.
Cllr. Lewis added: "The targeted £1 billion boost to funding for special educational needs and disabilities, which is a record 13 per cent increase on this year’s funding, must be used to improve the support given to those who need extra help.
"Last month, Ofsted reported on how families in Wirral are being pushed to the limit by a poor local service from Wirral Council. This needs urgent change and improvement - no child should be left behind because the Council can't get its act together.
The extra funding will help schools, councils, and other specialist providers provide the right care and support for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities – so that every child receives the help they need to learn and fulfil their potential.
The increases in school funding follows the investment of nearly £5 billion in education recovery, which includes £1.5 billion on tutoring in schools and colleges across the country to help children and young people catch up on lost learning during the pandemic.
Schools Minister Robin Walker added: "Every pupil, no matter where they grow up or go to school, deserves an excellent education and the chance to fulfil their potential.
"This additional investment also represents a significant boost to high needs funding, helping local authorities support pupils with special educational needs, and helping to ensure all young people can thrive and succeed."
