Comparing averages from both countries the spend per pupil in Wales is £527 less than pupils in England. This has been reported several times in the press.
What many people do not know however is that in Flintshire the problem is further compounded:-
Comparing individual counties in Wales, Flintshire receives £339 per pupil less than the Welsh average.
Despite several attempts by contacting the council, LEA and The Welsh Assembly we have received letters of no substance or avoidance of the questions asked. The Assembly say it is a Council issue and the Council say it is a Welsh Assembly Issue.
