Derbyshire schools are to get a share of an extra £14 million.

As one of the country’s worst-funded education authorities, Derbyshire qualifies for the Government cash and schools in places like Clowne, Whitwell and Creswell could benefit.

The money won’t be available until this time next year, but Derbyshire County Council is giving schools early notice of the windfall so they can plan for it.

The councils deputy leader, Coun Kevin Gillott, said: “This is a significant amount of money and by letting schools know early what’s available, it will help them plan their spending.”

“Funding for our schools still remains much lower than the national average, but I know schools will put whatever money they get to good use, giving students the standard of education they deserve.”

“Giving children the best start in life and helping them achieve their full potential is at the heart of what we do and we will continue to help schools deliver this.”
