Boris Johnson is coming to South Bucks today. 

The Prime Minister will be heading to a school in the county amid news of a three-year plan to increase school spending by £7.1 billion by 2022/23. 

The move came after years of lobbying by heads and teachers for more cash - including from head teachers in Bucks. 

The Bucks Free Press will be covering Mr Johnson's visit but is not allowed to reveal which school he will be attending.

All eyes are expected to be on Mr Johnson after his Brexit talks with Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar yesterday. 

The east midlands and the south west are among the biggest winners of the government boost - with both regions getting a five per cent increase in per-pupil funding, according to figures published by the Department for Education. 

The south east will get an additional £282 million - up 4.8 per cent per pupil.

The government has said the promised extra cash for schools fulfils Mr Johnson's commitment to boost spending, and schools that have been underfunded will get the biggest increases.

But while the investment has been welcomed, campaigners have warned it is not enough.

Geoff Barton, general secretary of the Association of School and College Leaders, said: "The biggest increases are aimed at tackling the insufficiency of funding in the worst-funded schools and this is much needed.

"However, many other schools will receive only an inflationary increase and because school costs are rising above inflation this will necessitate further savings from budgets which are already extremely hard pressed."

Some Bucks Free Press head teachers have been vocal in the past about the funding issues their schools have faced. 

Back in 2018, Bucks head teachers, including David Hood, head teacher at Cressex Community School in High Wycombe, sent a bill to Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond, for more than £141 million to cover the shortfall of education funding in the county.
