Why do the government say that there is more money in schools than ever before, when schools speak of reduced funding?

Since 2010, there are more than half a million more pupils in schools. As a result the government has had to put more money into education to pay for these extra pupils. The amount of money overall per pupil has not increased.
Traditionally, some schools have received more money than others. The government has introduced a National Funding Formula which was designed to give greater equality in funding between schools. In reality, any additional funding given to those schools who had traditionally had lower funding has been dwarfed by increased costs.
