The funding situation in schools is already at crisis point. But now Damian Hinds wants schools to fund the first 1% of the teacher pay rise from budgets that have already been hit by inflation, pension and National Insurance cost pressures. For many, this will be the final straw. We're working together with NEU and ACSL to tell the government that enough is enough.
Take action now
We've got three weeks until the budget on 29 October 2018, and we need your help to put pressure on the government. We're asking every teacher and leader in schools in England to write to their school's MP, asking them to put pressure on Damian Hinds to give our schools and colleges the funding they need.
