Education: Secondary / Mon 25th Jul 2022 am31 05:34am
A HEADTEACHER of a Harlow school has responded to claims that Harlow schools are set to receive over £84 million in funding from the government.
In a press release issued on Friday, just as schools were breaking up for the summer, Mr Halfon announced that:
“Harlow schools are set to benefit from £84,707,965 as part of the Department for Education’s provisional School Funding Update for 2023/24, an initiative that will help schools plan for their future needs.”
Co-Principal of Passmores Academy and CEO of Passmores Cooperative Learning Community, Vic Goddard responded to the statement.
Mr Goddard said: “It was lovely to receive notification from Robert Halfon of the ‘increased’ funding for the 23/24 academic; year with an over 6% increase.
“Unfortunately when we looked into it there is no additional funding yet announced that will reach any Essex, let alone Harlow, schools.
“There is no doubting how much Robert supports us but the report yesterday was a headline without substance.
“If it ever did happen, we’d be delighted!
mr halfon is becoming fame hungry and can no longer be trusted as far as im concerned he seems to just want to climb up the political ladder and forget about where he started from
I think I trust a seasoned headteacher over an MP who is desperate to ride the ministerial Jaguar once again when it comes to budgets!
He a Conservative! 130yrs out of a 150yrs of government we have been governed by the Conservatives, this is how it goes, this is always how it goes!
Vic Goddard is a top geezer At least he's looked into the bulls**t
