School Funding Cuts


Some schools in this constituency have received 28% cuts in funding - that's up to £2,500 less per child from this government.

Parents and grandparents have contacted me about and local head teachers have told me they are having to cut staff including teachers, restrict the subjects children can learn and increase class sizes.

I was concerned about this so I asked Government Ministers about this in Parliament during my response to the Chancellor's Budget and in Questions to the Treasury.

Ministers’ response to my questions is that the total core schools budget is increasing.

So I would like to ask you whether you think this is a fair distribution of the money and what you believe the implications are of these reductions going ahead.

I hope you will get in touch with me and share your views at
