Funding education

We recently announced a £14 billion investment in schools over three years- the biggest cash boost for a decade, which the independent IFS has said will restore schools’ funding to previous levels in real terms per pupil by 2022-23. As part of this, we will provide £700 million extra for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

Supporting teachers to reduce workload

Salaries for new teachers are also set to rise to £30,000 by 2022-23 and, this year, teachers and heads can receive a pay rise of 2.75% - above current rates of inflation. We have also launched the Early Career Framework to ensure newly qualified teachers are provided with early career support and development, including mentoring.
