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.

Save Alderman Swindell Primary

After nearly 90 years of educating the children of Yarmouth North, Alderman Swindell Primary School is the subject of a consultation that proposes to close our school and amalgamate it with North Denes. The disruption to children's education that will be brought about by at least 3 years of construction and shuttling pupils between schools and into temporary accommodation is a grave concern to parents and staff. Alderman Swindell Primary School has consistently met or exceeded the national average and has shown an increase in our results year-on-year for the past 3 years.Small schools such as Alderman Swindell play a vital role in their communities and research shows that in deprived areas 1-form entry schools outperform larger schools in both results and behaviour. Small schools such as Alderman Swindell play a vital role in their communities and research shows that in deprived areas 1-form entry schools outperform larger schools in both results and behaviour. The North Denes site has access problems, parents will have to cross to main roads without any pedestrian crossings during the busy rush-hour period, the increase in the number of vehicles parking on a busy junction poses an additional risk to pupils safety. There is also a significant concern with the management of North Denes Primary which is classed by the Department for Education as a "coasting" school which may be subject to forced academisation if it does not improve its performance. We call upon Norfolk County Council to respect the wishes of our community and keep Alderman Swindell Primary open to serve another 90 years of Yarmouth pupils.
