Spending on information technology by primary schools will drop by a third this year as heads and governors attempt to avert teacher redundancies, the Financial Times reports (p6).

The British Educational Suppliers Association, in a report out today, says spending on IT by primary schools has fallen by 34.9% in the current year. Secondary schools also cut spending on new technology by 1.5%.

Overall spending on resources, including all teaching materials but excluding larger items such as salaries and fuel increased by 1.3% - less than inflation, the FT reports.
