This is the second time I've posted this but please please sign. The impact of these cuts will be massive across many parts of the UK.
Check out how your schools fair. The schools in my area will suffer massively.

Huge impact in my kids' primary - down £771 per child per year.

It's a deprived area with mostly supportive but skint parents - the PTA struggles to raise £20 per child each year.

£779 a pupil in the secondary school I expect DD to be offered. Equates to 15 teachers shock

The other she may get offered is losing £584 per pupil - bigger school so equates to 17 teachers.

Not looking great either way sad

Not across the UK, just England and Wales AFAIK (pedant)

It's capped at 3% though.

So my school, which was in line for a good increase which would bring us to a fairer position to other schools, won't in fact get as much as we thought.

Those schools in London and counties that spend more per child will only see their budgets go down by 3%. I'm sure they'll manage - we have hmm

Odd that allspoison since the cut to our nearest school is 7%

Not true.
My county will be hit so badly (it is already underfunded btw) that the following has been sent out

In my nearest city the only schools affected are the two grammar schools. They are loaning but the comps will be getting more money so I think that's great. It's the comps who need more teachers, resources etc.

Our secondary head says he is losing £2000 per pupil.

BakeOffBiscuits Sat 18-Feb-17 21:35:12

Gosh some of these figures are shocking!

IndiansInTheLobby Sat 18-Feb-17 21:37:15

This is what's happening in our county

SpaghettiMeatballs Sat 18-Feb-17 21:44:19

I've signed, responded to the consultation and written to my MP. I'm in an area that's already in the bottom 10 and due to lose.

I am very concerned about this. I'm not sure how aware parents are in general.

I've searched schoolcuts.co.uk and I'm yet to find an area where budgets are due to increase beyond a few schools.

IndiansInTheLobby Sat 18-Feb-17 21:44:18

And more

IndiansInTheLobby Sat 18-Feb-17 21:46:18

We are holding a massive protest in my town. The impact of this will be catastrophic to our community 

GoodGirlGoneWrong Sat 18-Feb-17 21:50:06

Signed.

IndiansInTheLobby Sat 18-Feb-17 21:55:00

Thank you flowers

But most are losing bakeoffbiscuits. 98% of schools are losing funding at an average of £477 per pupil.

This website shows the impact on your local schools:

The Tory manifesto said education spending would be protected in this parliament. Another lie.

Indians do you think it's worth asking for your thread to be moved to the primary education section. It's just going to keep disappearing on chat.

It's the people with children in infant school who will suffer the most as they will have to live with these cuts through their entire education.

IndiansInTheLobby Sun 19-Feb-17 09:29:02

Will do-thank you

It's capped at 3% though

I haven't heard that. Do you have a link?
