Part A: Practical information about inspection from September 2019

 Our members have already done a huge amount but we must maintain the pressure on this issue to ensure the children we all serve receive the world class education they deserve. School leaders are trusted by the public to do the right thing and we know that when you raise your concerns people listen to what you have to say. Even though we have been successful in getting the message out to thousands already we must make sure that everyone knows about the crisis unfolding in our schools and we need you to helps us in getting that message out. We also need you to keep up the pressure on our politicians so they know that we will continue to campaign until the problem is solved. To get involved in the campaign and find out how you can help secure a proper funding settlement for schools follow the links on the main school funding page or fill in the reply form and we will contact you.
