Schools urgently need more funding

88% of schools are still facing
real-terms cuts

Because of shortfalls in funding 88% of schools are still facing real-terms cuts despite Government announcements about more money going into the system.

That means:

  • less for our children and young people
  • bigger classes
  • fewer teachers and staff
  • a reduced curriculum
  • parents plugging the gaps.

On Tuesday 24 October the National Education Union will hold a mass lobby of Parliament to protest against education funding cuts. MPs will be asked to put pressure on the Chancellor to find the funding needed to reverse the cuts and invest in our children and young people, a month before he is set to deliver his budget statement.
