Lib Dem plans will protect school funding - IFS

The Liberal Democrats have a costed promise to protect real terms per pupil funding to all schools so that no schools is worse off. In particular, this means replacing the Conservatives’ National Fair Funding Formula which would give Cheshire East schools the worst deal in the county.
This will cost £7 billion over the course of the next Parliament, paid for by not cutting corporation tax, and is based on the current year funding.
You can read about this on page 23 of our manifesto.
