TORIES HAVE PUT OUR SCHOOLS IN CRISIS
£2.8 billion has been cut from schools in the last two years and 91% of schools are set to lose out further under the Government’s new school funding plans. £6.6 million will be cut from schools across the borough of Bury by 2020.
Schools in Bury, Tottington and Ramsbottom will face real terms cuts of £3.8 million by 2020 under the Government’s new ‘National Funding Formula’ - an average cut of over £300 per pupil.
Schools are already being forced to make very tough choices. Headteachers are telling me they’re going to have to reduce the number of staff and cut resources and extra-curricular activities. We need to send a strong message to the Government that our children’s education must be protected.
Sign and share my petition to stop the cuts and give our schools the funding they need to provide a world class education to all young people in Bury, Tottington and Ramsbottom.
