Schools urgently need more funding

Unless the Government allocates more money, 93% of schools will have per-pupil funding cut by 2022​

Under the Government’s new funding formula we estimate that 93% of schools could lose out. These cuts will hurt us all. They will result, among many other things, in:

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

The NUT and the ATL are calling on the Government to take immediate action to inject much needed money into an already beleaguered system and protect our children’s education.
