83% of our schools nationwide will still lose out next year because of the Conservatives' cuts to school funding. Despite promises to increase funding, the detail of the Government’s latest announcement shows it is nowhere near enough, falling well short of correcting the shortfall for every child. Crucially, it fails to reverse the cuts schools have suffered since 2015.
As the crisis in school funding continues, we have the largest class sizes in the developed world. One in 8 secondary pupils are in classes with more than 30 students. How can we expect children to learn and thrive in this environment? As the Dad of a primary school child, I am determined to ensure our schools in South Cambridgeshire are fully funded. They should not have to make the difficult decision that many South Cambs schools have, of cutting staff hours.
