Headteachers couldn’t be clearer, they’re seeing the impact of the cuts every day.

Headteachers up and down the country have been raising the alarm for years. Funding cuts are making it impossible to deliver a proper education.

Every day headteachers are having to make difficult decisions – decisions about which basic supplies they can afford, and which staff will have reduced hours because there’s simply not enough money.

The Government claims that school budgets haven’t been cut and that education funding is higher than ever before. But that is simply not true. 83% of schools in England will still be worse off next year compared to 2015. This is a shortfall of £2bn in 2022/23 compared with 2015/16.

This has meant;

  • Fewer adults in the classroom providing essential teaching support
  • Larger class sizes and less individual attention for students
  • Less per pupil funding per year

For 83% of schools in England, the funding crisis continues next year.

Headteachers, governors, parents and school staff are speaking out because these cuts are having a devastating impact on the students of the future. Watch these videos and hear directly about how the cuts are damaging our education system.
