Petition to Rt Hon Justine Greening MP
Stop School Funding Cuts - All Our Children Deserve a Great Education
Schools across England are facing devastating funding cuts. This is already harming our children's education. Fair Funding For All Schools is an independent, parent-led campaign, working to stop the cuts to school funding through parent and people-power. Without increased investment cuts are likely to result in: · Cuts to teachers and support staff · Class sizes of up to 40 · Parents contributing to core running costs · School days shortened to save money · Cuts to subjects such as music and languages We want to tell Justine Greening, our Secretary of State for Education: to increase investment in our schools and ensure NO child loses out as a result of the new funding formula - taking money away from any of our schools is wrong. We are demanding our government gives our schools the funding it promised – and recognises that investment in education is an investment both in the future of our children and of our country. Please sign our petition calling on the government to keep its promise and protect all our children’s education.

Petition to Neil Carmichael MP and Chair of the Education Select Committee
Fair Funding for Schools in Gloucestershire
The government has confirmed new funding for free schools, whilst all other state schools are having to make cuts. Gloucestershire is set to lose £29.6 million by 2019. This works out as £385 less per pupil and 795 fewer teachers across the county. This crisis will lead to staff cuts, reduced provision for Special Educational Needs, larger classes, reduced subject options and extra curricular activities, ultimately damaging education in Gloucestershire. We call on the Education Select Committee to ensure that school funding is distributed fairly.
