9 in 10 schools in England have suffered cuts to per pupil funding since 2015.

In unprecedented numbers, heads, teachers, support staff and parents have pleaded with the Government to recognise the reality on the ground and act.

Andy Ramanandi is the headteacher of St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Gateshead. His school has lost out on £141,694 since 2015.

The Government keeps saying that there is more school funding then ever before, but the cuts are still happening. The numbers speak for themselves: 

  • Schools have lost out on £5.4bn in funding since 2015.
  • Primary school classes are the largest since 2000.
  • Secondary classes are the largest since 2007.

According to School Cuts’s calculations, which are based on Department of Education figures, 17,723 schools in England have suffered Government cuts to per pupil funding since 2015.

Schools need £2.2bn more of new money per year just to maintain funding in real terms in the face of inflation, cost increases and rising pupil numbers.

Every day, headteachers up and down the country struggle to manage the impact of the funding cuts on their provision for children. Staff in schools from Cornwall to Cumbria are working harder, for longer and taking on more responsibility because providing a quality education is their top priority.

In unprecedented numbers, heads, teachers, support staff and parents have pleaded with the Government to recognise the reality on the ground and act. And while we’ve forced the Government to take notice, they’ve failed to commit the funding that schools so urgently need.

By joining the you can help end school funding cuts and ensure that no child loses out.
