Sign the petition to save nursery schools

As a result of chronic underfunding, many nursery schools have been forced to close in recent years. Unless the Government changes course, even more nursery schools will face threat of closure, as early as September 2020.

Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, must guarantee proper funding for the long term and ensure no more nursery schools are forced to close because of insufficient budgets.Even with the recent funding announcement for schools and colleges, there is no funding commitment to secure the future of maintained nursery schools.

The Government has accepted that nursery school funding is insufficient. As a stopgap measure, it allocated some money to plug the holes – but only till 2020.

Even with the recent funding announcement for schools and colleges, there is no funding commitment to secure the future of maintained nursery schools.

Nursery schools face losing one third of their budget on average next year. This means severe cuts to the education and services they provide. In many cases, these cuts will simply put nursery schools at risk of closure.
