Mrs Badenoch said: "My meeting was a useful opportunity to discuss the school's successes and challenges. In particular, they made the case that smaller schools like Little Hallingbury provide the same services as larger ones, but this is not factored in to the funding formula.

"Funding is a prominent issue at the moment. Undoubtedly progress is being made, but I will continue to lobby Government on this to make sure that schools across our constituency have the resources they need."

She also spoke to students about politics and the role of an MP.
