That website is undergoing revision but is still available to view.
Newham Teachers’ Association has a School Cuts Working Party which meets regularly to build a local campaign against the cuts faced by Newham’s schools.
Message from NEU:
Join the lobby of Parliament on Tuesday 24 October organised by the National Education Union, parent groups and other unions. Register for the lobby here. Show MPs you oppose the Government’s funding policy. Tell your colleagues and encourage parents and others to attend.
● School cuts have not been reversed.
● There is no real new money for education.
● Cuts to high needs, early years and post-16 are not being reversed
● There is no long term funding commitment
● Historic underfunding will not be addressed
The Government promised ‘fairer funding’ but has instead been cutting schools’ funding in real terms, leading to larger class sizes, curriculum cuts, fewer teachers and support staff, resources and materials. All of this is set to continue.
The School Cuts website will be updated soon so that parents, teachers and education professionals can see the full impact of these proposals on every school.
Education must be fairly funded and the only way to do that is to provide more money. Support the National Education Union’s campaign with parents and help us make the Government see sense.
Message from, Andrew Baisley, School Cuts Campaign, NUT:
In four short weeks, MPs will return to Westminster.
If we’re going to reverse school cuts, this autumn will be crucial – and we need to be ready.
The Chancellor, Philip Hammond, will be presenting his budget to Parliament in November.
We’ll need to work together to drum up more pressure than ever before, urging him to agree extra education funding before that budget is put forth.
Get ready for an autumn of campaigning by attending one of our free activist trainings this September:
An appeal is underway for extra stewards.
Volunteers should contact Alex Kenny [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
We are asking stewards to get there for 11:00am. Continue reading Carnival Against the Cuts: Appeal for Stewards
Message from the Carnival Against Cuts organisers:
Sunday 16 July
We’ve got great speakers lined up and stuff to entertain the kids, of course.
And we need you there.
So please do come down and join us on the day. Let’s make them take notice and hear our voice.
We assemble at Whitehall Gardens SW1 at midday.
Our family friendly rally / picnic / fun day starts in Parliament Square at 1.30pm
Please tell your friends, your family and everyone at your school. See if your Head will put it out to all the parents.
You may have never been on a rally before. Neither had we before we started this campaign! Let’s go and make some noise.
Message from Andrew Baisley, NUT, School Cuts Campaign:
For a few short weeks MPs are back in the House of Commons.
We must act now to convince as many as we can to back our campaign. If we work together, we can make sure they don’t vote for cuts to our schools.
Fair Funding For All Schools have called a Carnival Against the cuts in central London on Sunday July 16th, which the NAHT, NUT and ATL are supporting.
There will be a short march from Victoria Embankment to a picnic with speeches and entertainment in Parliament Square.
