On Thursday 3 August, the Department for Education published the findings from its most recent analytical work to understand the impact of changes in school funding on the outcomes that schools deliver for their pupils.

On the importance of school resources, it states:

“Spending more on learning resources (e.g. books, computers) in most cases positively affected attainment. Spending an extra £1,000 would have boosted the test scores of SEN pupils by 6.2%.”

This reinforces the need for our Resource Our Schools campaign, which is dedicated to ensuring that every school has access to the resources they need to deliver the education that our children deserve. Sign our statement here.
