A national funding formula would mean less money for schools, Local Government Association education chair Graham Lane has warned.

He told delegates at the National Association of Head Teachers conference: 'A single national funding system, as proposed at the NAHT conference, would enable the government to have total control of the money going into education and could lead to less money being spent.'

He said councils were able to draw extra money for schools from other budgets.

Delegates were reminded of councils praised by Ofsted for supporting schools, including Birmingham City Council, Bury MBC, Camden LBC, Durham City Council, Hammersmith & Fulham LBC, Hertfordshire CC, Lewisham LBC, Newcastle City Council, Norfolk CC, Nottinghamshire CC, Rutland CC, Salford MBC, Wandsworth LBC, Warwickshire CC, Newham LBC,Wolverhampton MBC and City of York.
