Increasing School Funding

Every parent wishes to send their child to a great school near their home.

We want to ensure that school places are available and that teachers and staff are fully supported in the amazing work they do. This is why Ruth will fight for our fair share of the Conservatives' £14bn increase to school funding. This works out at an extra £5,000 per secondary school pupil and £4,000 per primary school pupil for our area by 2021-2022.

Ruth also campaigns for the creation of safer crossings and access outside schools in our community, making sure our children can get to and from school safely.
