Under this Tory government Bridport’s schools have missed out on the funding they need to thrive. Between 2015 and 2019 Colfox School has lost out on £1.3 million or £581 per pupil. Bridport Primary has missed out on £261 per pupil, St Mary’s £618 per pupil and St. Catherine’s £286 per pupil. These figures are the difference between funding and the minimum amount needed to protect per pupil funding in real terms.
In Dorset as a whole £25.2 million has been lost in real terms. That’s £177 for every pupil.
