‘Education needs more money’

November 28 2018

DOZENS of primary school headteachers in South Gloucestershire have added their voices to the campaign for improved funding.

They say they don’t have enough money to maintain high quality provision and point out that three quarters of schools have already had to cut teaching assistant posts. “These pressures are so great that we fear some of our schools may even be unable to meet statutory responsibilities, in relation to curriculum provision, health and safety or special educational needs,” they say in a letter urging the council to speak to Education Seretary Damian Hinds.
