"Increase funding for schools" national petition -
Schools are having to make difficult choices on how to spend their limited funding as their income has not kept pace with the rise in costs since 2010. All schools are working very hard to “make ends meet” but this is becoming increasingly difficult and verging on almost impossible.

As funding has become tighter, schools have had to cut back on:
• Teaching and non-teaching staff
• Support for more vulnerable pupils
• Small group work for children who are not thriving in school
• Teaching resources (parents being asked to pay for books and materials)
• Subject choices in secondary schools
• Range of activities for primary pupils
• Extra curricula activities provided free or subsidised
• Repairs to buildings
• Renewal of equipment Sign this petition

At 100,000 signatures, this petition will be considered for debate in Parliament - Deadline 19 May 2019
