Pupil teacher ratios are rising which means bigger class sizes and less attention for individuals. The number of staff in secondary schools has fallen by 15,000 and worse is still to come. Because of shortfalls in funding 91% of schools are still facing real-terms cuts despite Government announcements about more money going into the system.
These cuts are happening when schools have to contend with a recruitment and retention crisis. The Government has missed their own recruitment targets for the last five years and less than half of England’s teachers last more than 10 years in the classroom.
We can’t stand back and let these cuts happen. Visit the School Cuts website to find out how your school has been affected.
