Enough is enough
The Government’s new Education for All Bill continues to show they have the wrong priorities for teachers, schools and children. As more schools become academies, the coverage of the national STPCD and Burgundy Book will narrow and these protections will gradually wither away. Real term cuts in funding will have major effects on schools and teachers, whether academy or maintained. This will further erode terms and conditions, increase workload and impede pay progression for teachers.
NUT Ballot Result
91.7% of members in England who voted have voted to support ‘discontinuous strike action’ against cuts in funding and for genuine negotiations around our workload, pay and other conditions.

The NUT is asking the Government not to implement the real terms cuts that will affect ALL schools. Primary schools and small, or rural schools suffer disproportionately when funding is cut, and even academies will be hit hard.
