Robert Courts MP meet with Schools Minister

I have met with the Minsiter for Schools, Nick Gibb, to discuss the impact of the funding formula on West Oxfordshire schools.

I pressed upon the Minister the need for all West Oxfordshire schools to have the funding they need, particularly those in rural areas which might be most seriously affected.

I was given a detailed explanation as to how the model was produced and I discussed options with the Minister which might help local schools, including my idea of an essential funding level that will ensure schools have the key funding that they need.
