NAHT is working alongside members in campaigning for the government to take urgent action on school funding.
Our ‘Breaking Point’ report shows that schools are struggling to balance their books, and according to the Department for Education’s own data the education system will be running a £3bn deficit by 2020.
Despite what the government says, school budgets are not protected. NAHT is at the forefront of efforts to expose this and make the case for a reversal of the real terms reductions that all schools are facing.
Over the next few weeks we would like you to do three things:
- Write to your MP to tell them just how your school budgets are being squeezed
- Send a tweet using the #SchoolCuts hashtag and our @NAHTnews handle with an example of how the cuts are biting in your school.
- Sign our petition on the school cuts website.
This page draws together all of NAHT’s campaigning activity on the school funding crisis. You’ll find our public messaging in our press releases below, and the press coverage we have generated is collated in a document on the right of the page.
