More money for Schools

The Chancellor has confirmed that spending on schools will rise in real terms every year for the next few years. Surestart programmes will also be protected in cash terms.

Although the BSF programme has been scrapped, this does not mean that there will be no new school building: the chancellor said that six hundred schools will benefit from investment in new or improved buildings.

It does here in Sittingbourne and Sheppey ! All planned building work has been shelved except for the Sheppey Academy. Our local Tory MP Gordon Henderson purports to represent all of us, guess where he lives? Yes, that's right: The Island of Sheppey!
