Our verdict

  • This is a promise to ensure that all government-funded secondary schools will receive at least £5000 for each pupil they have on roll.
  • On 30 January 2020, new regulations were presented to the House of Commons which “ensure that in 2020-21 every secondary school will receive at least £5,000 per pupil”.
  • The regulations came into force on 21 February 2020, so this policy is ‘done’.
