No to Bristol school budget cuts

This petition had 79 supporters

Bristol schools are  facing a devastating cut to its budgets. These cuts will impact severely on children who are either in school or about to enter education as well as future generations. Bristol schools to enact these cuts will have to look at the following as options. 

* Increased class sizes

* Reduce support for children with special needs

*Reduce support for children requiring extra help with English and Maths

* Reduce the curriculum which will reduce choice for learners based on affordable class sizes

* Cuts to teaching staff, teaching assistants and support roles

* Asking for parents donations to core running costs

* Reduced teaching weeks

* Cuts to extra-curricular activities and resources

The government is set to spend over £300 million on new grammar schools and is  cutting corporation tax for the very wealthy. Therefore the argument that there is no alternative but to cut funding is not true but a political decision by the government to favour a select few and underfunding the majority.

The government say that education funding is protected! And back in the real world the Institute for Fiscal Studies forecasted that “school spending per pupil is likely to fall by around 8 per cent in real terms between 2014/15 and 2019/20” as a result of funding not keeping up with the growing costs facing schools and rising pupil numbers.

Please sign our petition calling on the government to keep its promise and protect all our children’s education.

This petition will be delivered to:

* Secretary of State for Education Rt Hon Justine Greening MP
