star this property answer text <p> </p><p>No decision has yet been made on Phase Two as we are still considering the responses to the public consultation. Sir David Higgins's proposals would see the Government's preferred route to Crewe, which formed part of the recent Phase Two consultation, constructed earlier. Therefore, it is not anticipated that Sir David's proposal alone would affect the route through the Lichfield constituency. However, the route of Phase Two through the Lichfield constituency is clearly subject to the outcomes of the recent public consultation.</p><p> </p><p>The powers for Phase Two, including the section of line to Crewe, are proposed to be sought via a second hybrid Bill. As such the connection to the West Coast Main Line as part of the Phase One Bill is still required to allow Phase One to operate effectively and to enable destinations such as Stafford to benefit from high speed services. </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In 2015-16, in addition to funding all local authorities at the same cash level per pupil as in 2014-15, we will add a further £350 million funding for the least fairly-funded authorities.To allocate this as fairly as possible, we selected the characteristics we think contribute most to the attainment of pupils and viability of schools, and set indicative minimum funding levels for each of these. The characteristics we selected were as follows:</p><p>1. An age-weighted basic per pupil unit of funding; and</p><p>2. Additional units of funding for:</p><p>2.1. deprived pupils;</p><p>2.2. pupils with low attainment;</p><p>2.3. pupils with English as an additional language;</p><p>2.4. children who are looked after, for example in foster care;</p><p>2.5. a lump sum for all schools, regardless of size, to help with fixed costs; and</p><p>2.6. funding for schools serving sparsely populated rural areas.</p><p>These are all characteristics that local authorities already use in distributing schools funding. We looked at the average value attached by local authorities to each of these characteristics and used these as a basis for our proposed minimum funding levels for primary and secondary pupils and schools. As Staffordshire already attracts funding above these levels, it does not stand to gain from these proposals.</p><p>Full details of our methodology can be found in the consultation document at:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/fairer-schools-funding-2015-to-2016" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/fairer-schools-funding-2015-to-2016</a></p><p> </p>
