Please read – National Funding Formula – Headteachers´ response
As you are aware, we have campaigned for much improved funding for our schools for a sustained period of time.
In September 2017 the government announced its new National Funding Formula. Consequently, the Department for Education reduced the amount that it had originally planned to take from school budgets by £1.3 billion (2015-2020) and confirmed new formula arrangements for how schools would be funded from April 2018.
Please read the attached PDF´s for all the information. Your influence as parents/carers is utterly vital. Please discuss the issues raised with your local MPs and local representatives. There are also many active local parent groups who you can engage with. We will continue to lobby vigorously too and provide further updates shortly.
