School Cuts


£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.

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.

    Cuts to Bury schools is just ridiculous. They are already under funded compared to the rest of the country. My daughter’s school is already in a state of dis repair. Taking money away will be a safety issue and most certainly affect her education. I have worked all of my life since being 18 and am now 51 yet I am to be rewarded by cuts to my daughter’s education. Disgraceful! I already pay for private tuition to help with her dyslexia.
