Cuts will affect local schools

 

Unless the Government allocates additional money, schools and academies will lose huge amounts of money - rising to £2.5 billion a year in real terms by 2020.  The impact on our local schools in Dane Valley would be:

Hermitage Primary

-£92,512 Budget change by 2020

-£460 Per pupil

-2 Teachers

Holmes Chapel Primary

-£132,299 Budget change by 2020

-£366 Per pupil

-3 Teachers

 

Holmes Chapel Comprehensive

-£290,644 Budget change by 2020

-£282 Per pupil

-7 Teachers

Goostrey Community Primary

-£50,463 Budget change by 2020

-£239 Per pupil

-1 Teacher

 

The Data

The NUT and ATL used published Department for Education data to calculate cuts to England’s primary and secondary schools over this Parliament, 2015 – 2020.  They used the 2015/16 funding as the baseline. They calculated the impact of the cash freeze on per pupil income, the proposed cut to the Education Services Grant and the proposed introduction of a National Funding Formula. They included a minimum funding guarantee (MFG) as this has been in place since the Government started moving towards a National Funding Formula in 2013/14.

  

England’s schools are now experiencing the largest real terms cuts in funding in more than a generation.

SCHOOLS ARE STRUGGLING FINANCIALLY. CLASS SIZES ARE RISING, CURRICULUM CHOICES ARE BEING CUT, PUPILS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS ARE LOSING VITAL SUPPORT AND SCHOOL STAFF ARE LOSING THEIR JOBS.

The Government’s proposed ‘Fair Funding’ reforms will not make matters any better. Without additional funding, a new funding formula will simply spread an already inadequate amount of money around more thinly.
