Schools in London’s most deprived communities will bear the brunt of the Government’s planned funding reforms, Labour claimed today.

Boroughs where up to a third of pupils are on free school meals will see budget reductions of between one and three per cent if proposed changes are introduced in 2018-19.

The warning comes as Labour pledged to provide free school meals for every primary school pupil if it wins the next general election, by charging VAT on private school fees.
