All primary schools in England would get extra cash to fund arts activities under plans unveiled by Jeremy Corbyn at Edinburgh's Fringe Festival.
The arts "pupil premium" would be modelled on the existing top-up grants given to schools for PE and sport.
The Labour leader pledged to raise government spending on the arts in line with the European average and boost participation among low-income groups.
He also said councils should be obliged to provide a library service.
Speaking at world's largest arts festival in the Scottish capital, Mr Corbyn said that under his leadership Labour will draw on the country's "proud cultural heritage" and give people from all sections of society the opportunity for their "creativity to flourish".[ Read more... ]
This year’s GCSE results were particularly significant for a small number of schools – the earliest free schools, which opened their doors in 2011 and received their first results yesterday.

Less than a third (32%) of Britain’s 130 medallists attended fee-paying schools, a four percentage point reduction from London 2012, when 36% of Team GB’s medal-winners were privately educated. Getty Gold medalist Laura Trott of Great Britain celebrates during the medal ceremony after the women's Omnium Points race on Day 11 of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games at the Rio Olympic Velodrome on August 16, 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.[ Read more... ]
