Schools have been told they face making "difficult decisions" to stay within budget in 2019-20.

The warning comes in a letter from the finance director at the Department of Education (DE), Gary Fair.

Mr Fair also wrote that education faced a "challenging" outcome from the Northern Ireland budget

However, he said there would be an extra £7.25m for the aggregated schools budget (ASB) in 2019-20.

That is a 0.6% rise on the £1.167bn funding to schools in 2018-19.

Schools will also receive an additional £54.6m specifically to pay for an increase in public sector pension costs - including teachers - which is to take effect on 1 April.
