98% OF SCHOOLS TO LOSE OUT UNDER THE GOVERNMENT'S SCHOOL FUNDING PROPOSALS

Unless the Government allocates additional money, schools and academies will lose huge amounts in real terms cuts — rising to £3 billion a year in real terms by 2020. Head teachers are already speaking of the impossible job they have to balance the books and offer the best education for all children. Yet there is worse to come.

Under the Government's new funding formula we estimate that 98% of schools could lose out. These cuts will hurt us all. They will result, amongst many other things, in:

  • increased class sizes,
  • loss of school staff, and
  • cuts to extra-curricular activities and resources.

To find out more please visit the school cuts website and sign the petition.

Email your MP to let them know what's happening in schools in their area and ask them to take action.

Then spread the word about the school cuts website. It's about time we had an informed debate on school funding.
