Stop school cuts.

The National Education Union launched an indicative ballot to ask members about next steps in the funding campaign. The results show unanimous support for the campaigning work that the National Education Union (NEU) has pioneered on school and college funding cuts: 100% of respondents want this to continue.

Government-waged cuts are crippling schools and colleges, making it harder for leaders and teachers to do a good job for our students and pupils. It is pushing up class sizes, workload, stress and driving good teachers from the profession. With Sixth Form funding to remain frozen from September for the seventh year running, things will only get worse. Over 2,000 SEND children have no education provision. Our schools and colleges need more funding if we are to give our children the education they deserve.

It’s vital we continue to apply pressure to ensure our schools and colleges are funded properly. And in the coming months local elections will take place across England, handing us an opportunity to exert political leverage.

What you can do:

  • Sign the Gateshead heads’ petition and get it to the 100,000 signatures needed to force a Parliamentary debate
  • Show your support and get involved in our Funding Campaign.

SEND funding crisis

According to the Department for Education’s own figures, more than 2,000 children in England with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) have no education provision at all. Yvonne has been in education for 33 years and she's never seen the funding so bad, particularly for children with special needs.
