The Chancellor's Spending Review has confirmed that school funding in England will increase by £2.2bn next year, and also unveiled a ten-year programme to rebuild 500 schools.
The announcement maintains the three-year commitment made in 2019 to increase core school budgets by £7.1bn by 2022-23.
This should mean that secondary school funding will be at least £5,150 per pupil and at primary at least £4,000 per pupil.
Rishi Sunak's other key announcements for schools included the following:
The Spending Review also factored in a pause in pay rises for public sector workers earning over £24,000, although the Treasury has indicated that it still wants to increase starting salaries of teachers to £30,000 - but the deadline for this appears uncertain.
