Harriett Baldwin, Worcestershire children deserve better Fight the unfair funding formula!

Harriett Baldwin MP needs to take Worcestershire Schools’ concerns seriously. Schools are facing a real-term cut through the implementation of the new National Funding Formula for schools. This is because of increases in the costs of teaching equipment, materials and services, higher National Insurance contributions, higher pensions contributions, the new apprenticeship levy and the scrapping of the Educational Services Grant. Teachers’ pay has fallen in value by over 12% in real terms. This has led to huge problems in schools in recruiting and holding on to talented teachers. It is vital that any much needed pay increases are fully funded. Worcestershire Schools need enough additional funding to avoid letting down our children. We do not want fewer teachers, fewer courses, fewer resources and bigger class sizes.

Harriett needs to challenge the introduction of National Funding Formula.
