More than 20 primary schools in Sheffield will have over £75,000 cut from their budgets by 2020.

New figures have revealed that most primary schools in Sheffield will have their budgets slashed by tens of thousands of pounds.

The cuts come under the Government’s new national funding formula with most schools set to lose thousands by the time it is fully implemented.

In Sheffield the new funding formula will not be introduced straight away, instead the council will phase the implementation for schools from next year.

However, the city’s secondary schools will have their budgets increased by up to £1m under the formula.

By 2020/21, all but a handful of primaries will be losing tens of thousands of pounds.

The budget for primary schools in the city will fall from £177m in 2018/19, to £176m in 2019/20 and to £169m in 2020/21.

A school losing around £70,000 from its budget is the equivalent to two or three teachers and teaching assistants.

More than 20 primary schools in Sheffield will lose more than £75,000 under the formula.
