Petition Action

Increase funding for schools to ensure that they do not enter deficit

Petition Details

We call for immediate funding from the Government to fully meet the rising costs schools are facing.

Additional Information

The current funding increase and energy bill relief scheme will not be enough to prevent further cut-backs and redundancies. This will greatly harm our education system and pupils.

Inflation, rising costs and unfunded pay rises mean that the majority of schools expect to be in a deficit financial position at the end of this year (22/23).

This will lead to schools having to significantly reduce provision, such as spending on resources for pupils and staffing. Without further funding from the Government, school staff are likely to be made redundant. Properly funding education is necessary for the growth of our country.
