Schools face millions of pounds in cuts for being prudent
"Thousands of schools face having hundreds of millions of pounds cut from their budgets as a punishment for being prudent.
"A third of schools, including nurseries and special schools, have amassed almost £500 million in surplus cash in case of future cutbacks, official figures revealed.
"The league table was produced by the Government, which wants to name and shame the 7,196 schools with excessive balances that it accuses of hoarding money. It is the first time that schools have been ranked according to their account balances.
"Ministers warned that head teachers must discuss handing the money back with their local council or face being forced to pay it back under new laws to be introduced next year."
