star this property answer text <p>The Department has invested an extra £1.3 billion into core schools funding across 2018-19 and 2019-20, which is an increase from the plans set out in the last Spending Review. Core funding for schools and high needs has risen from almost £41 billion in 2017-18 to £42.4 billion this year and will rise further to £43.5 billion in 2019-20. The Department allows head teachers to use their funding in a way they feel achieves the best outcomes for pupils.</p><p> </p><p>From 2013 to March 2019, the Department is providing £5.3 million for pupils and teachers from state-funded secondary schools in England to participate in battlefield tours of the Western Front. The Department is also funding a series of roadshows from 2016 to December 2018, to enable pupils to debate the causes, conduct and consequences of World War I with a panel of experts.</p><p> </p><p>Moreover, in the recent Budget the Government committed a further £1million for 2019-20 for further World War I battlefield visits for school students to mark the centenary of World War I Armistice and the sacrifices made.</p>
