School funding still in crisis: regional school summits

Funding campaigning.jpg

We are hosting events across the country to shine a light on the impact the funding crisis is having on UK schools. Teachers, school leaders, governors, MPs and parents will join together to campaign for an investment in education.

These summits are free to attend and are available to members and non-members.  To join an event or for more information email our team on

North West Education Summit - 20 April 

This event will be held at from 1pm to 3pm at the Mechanics' Conference Centre in Manchester. Guests include NAHT general secretary Paul Whiteman, Shadow Secretary of State for Education Angela Rayner MP, North West head teachers, parent campaigners and members of parliament for the North West

All North West schools are encouraged to send delegates from their SLT, staff and governors. There is no requirement to be an NAHT member to attend.

Bath and North East Somerset national weekend of action on school cuts - 21 to 22 April 

As it stands 53 out of 72 schools in B&NES will face further cuts of over £1m between now and 2019/20 - even with the national funding formula changes and Justine Greening's 'additional' £1.3bn. These further cuts are on top of the cuts already suffered and don't take into account the disintegration of support services around schools and the 'efficiency savings' yet to come from the DfE to pay for the 'additional' £1.3bn.

As part of the national weekend of action, we are meeting for a media/press photo-shoot and comment session on Saturday 21 April. We will be meeting at 11.15 in the Abbey Square (by the Pump Rooms).  


March 4 Schools, SOS West Sussex - 21 April 

The parent-led campaign group for funding, SOS – West Sussex, are leading a march through Worthing on 21 April. Meeting at the Steyne in Worthing at 2pm, the march will go through the town and supporters will hear from local heads, campaigners and Rob Kelsall, NAHT national secretary.  

Please encourage friends, colleagues and family to take part and bring along your homemade banners, whistles and drums.

Birmingham rally against school cuts - 28 April 

Join parents and teachers to rally against school cuts in the heart of Birmingham in Victoria Square at 1pm. We'll be dropping a massive banner to showing the schools facing cuts. Rally and speeches will follow. Speakers include Jack Dromey, MP for Birmingham Erdington and Ian Ward, leader of Birmingham City Council
