Protect Investment in Teachers and Support Staff at Parrs Wood High School, Manchester.

This petition made change with 1,505 supporters!

We the undersigned call on the Trustees at Parrs Wood High School to reconsider the restructuring and redundancies currently planned. Instead, we call on the Trustees to protect investment in the teaching and support staff that make the most difference to pupils.

We recognise that many schools up and down the country are facing significant cuts in per pupil funding this year and are facing some difficult decisions, and that Parrs Wood High School is no different in this respect. Quite rightly, there is widespread concern about the damage this will cause to the prospects of the current generation of primary and secondary pupils, especially those that require higher levels of support.

Parrs Wood High School is the only school in a recently formed Multi-Academy Trust (MAT). It now has a Headteacher and Executive Principal and two additional layers of governance for what is essentially the same school, as before becoming a MAT. This all comes at an additional cost, which re-directs money from the everyday running of the school in order to fund the trust and these additional posts.

This petition has been initiated by parents and we are looking for support from parents and carers of children currently at the school, parents and carers of children that might go to the school in the future and other concerned local citizens.  

The petition is specifically calling on Trustees to reconsider unnecessary senior Executive appointments and focus resources on protecting the teaching and support staff that have direct contact with pupils every day.
