Increase education funding 2017 and remove business rate for primary schools across the UK

This petition had 11 supporters

We are currently like many schools across the United kingdom suffering a huge budget deficit for 2017/18 due largely  to an increase in staffing expenses as we are  experiencing rises in National  insurance and pension costs amongst other thing's. In order to protect the standard's of education for our children we need to ensure that ALL children recieve  an adequate  amount of funding.  If it is not possible to get a greater share of the budgeting pie how can we help? 

Do you know that your school pays business rates? This Money that all school's  pay amounts to over £40,000 per year . As we face staff cuts does this seem reasonable  when businesses in Coventry  receive rate relief and schools don't?   To me it does not. Sign this petition  to get rate relief for all Primary schools in England. It's a simple solution all be it temporary to a huge problem.
