School Funding

You may be aware from recent news reports that schools across the country are facing financial crisis due to the effect of austerity cuts. The present government states that education funding has been protected. However, the reality is that while there is more funding for education, this is because there are far more school aged children nationally. The amount schools have to spend on each pupil has fallen dramatically.

Attached is a letter signed by 20 local schools’ headteachers detailing the scale of the problem and asking for your help by contacting the prospective parliamentary candidates for Hitchin and Harpenden. Please support schools in trying to protect your children’s education.
