You will be aware that schools and academies in West Sussex remain massively underfunded when compared to the national average or London. This year, West Sussex children received
£44m less than the national average and £200m less than the average London borough.
This unfairness is having a crippling effect upon schools across the county. During the last school year, ‘Worth Less?’ campaigned for interim funding support to help us overcome the current situation.

This is no longer the case and the introduction has been delayed with no clear future date set.
