Unless the Government allocates additional money, schools and academies will lose huge amounts in real terms cuts — rising to £3 billion a year in real terms by 2020. Head teachers are already speaking of the impossible job they have to balance the books and offer the best education for all children. Yet there is worse to come.

Under the Government’s new funding formula we estimate that 98% of schools could lose out. These cuts will hurt us all. They will result, amongst many other things, in:

  • increased class sizes,
  • increased class sizes,
  • loss of school staff, and
  • 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.

Enter your postcode then take a look at the map to see how schools in your neighbourhood will be affected.

Email your MP to let them know what’s happening in schools in their area and ask them to take action.

Then spread the word about the schoolcuts.org.uk website. It’s about time we had an informed debate on school funding.

The website has been developed by the National Union of Teachers and the Association of Teachers and Lecturers.

Note: The website does not include data for special schools or schools which are very new.
