Commenting, Dr Mary Bousted, Joint General Secretary of the National Education Union, said:

“The NEU’s Super Saturdays are an opportunity for parents, teachers, school staff and all who are interested or concerned about education, to come together find out more about the challenges facing schools and colleges. We have fought a long campaign against real-terms school cuts – the Government has moved ground, but it is nowhere near far enough. Staff are being cuts, class sizes are increasing, and school buildings remain in long-term disrepair.

“Our message is cutting through. Just this week a Deltapoll survey of parents, commissioned by the NEU, found that education have moved from fourth to third in their priorities in just a fortnight. Parents, alongside teachers, head teachers and support staff, know that if you value education then you must vote for education
