OXFORDSHIRE schools could get an extra £500,000 if changes to the way funding levels are worked out go ahead.

Schools Minister David Laws has announced a consultation in the Houses of Parliament. 

He wants to inject £350m into schools nationally and Oxfordshire would be one of areas to benefit.

It would be a 0.1 per cent boost to funding, increasing to £333.6m next April, for the 2015-16 financial year.
