Following today’s announcement from the Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond that there is to be £400 million funding for schools to ‘buy the little extras they need’, Mike Parker, director of Schools North East, said:
"The Chancellor started his Budget off in jovial fashion declaring he was 'Phil the Fiscal' but his crass comments on funding the 'little things' in education is more akin to Phil the Flippant. His comments deny the depth of underfunding in schools, forcing them to write to parents to beg for support and seeing teachers made redundant, curriculum narrowing and slashing the vital enrichment in schools that support the most deprived.
