Haringey Fair Funding public meeting

March 1, 2017

Last night (28th February) I spoke at a meeting organised school funding cuts in Haringey at Fair Funding for All on school funding cuts.  

It is frankly shocking that a Government talking about social mobility is going to be the first Government since the mid-1990's to cut schools funding. 

By 2020 Haringey schools will lose around 8% in real terms when taking into account the Government's new 'Fair' Funding Formula and other funding pressures like increased national insurance contributions and the apprenticeship levy. This equates to over £600 for every pupil, or the salaries of 580 teachers.

In Tottenham all 38 schools lose money, yet in more affluent areas like Wimbledon, Twickenham and Richmond schools are getting a funding boost.

I fiercely oppose these cuts to the most deprived areas and most disadvantaged young people to divert money to more wealthy areas. Last week I met with Schools Minister Nick Gibb to ask him to think again and I will continue to fight against these cuts to our schools.
