Government cuts are crippling schools and colleges, making it harder for leaders and teachers to do a good job for our students and pupils. The cuts are pushing up class sizes, workload, stress and driving good teachers from the profession.

The "funding crisis in our schools is very real". Read NEU joint secretaries letter to James Cleverly.

We need to keep the pressure on ahead of this spring's comprehensive spending review, when government will set out its funding plans for education for the next three years. 

Sign the petition

Congratulations to all who signed. This petition was created by a group of head teachers in Gateshead, and now Parliament will debate this petition on 4 March 2019. A great success for all concerned.

Watch our video on the crisis in SEND funding


According to the Department for Education’s own figures, more than 2,000 children in England with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) are awaiting provision.

Meet Yvonne. She's been in education for 33 years and she's never seen the funding so bad, particularly for children with special needs.
