Paper petition details
Funding for Barnet Schools
lobby the Government against any cuts to Barnet’s schools brought about by the new National Funding Formula which is due to be implemented in April 2018.
The National Funding Formula, as currently proposed, will re-distribute funding in a way that will mean most Barnet schools lose money.
This loss of funding is on top of rising staffing and running costs that schools face, and at a time when pupil numbers are also rising.
The cuts could result in:
• Increased class sizes
• Loss of teaching and support staff
• Less support for children and young people
• Fewer subject choices
• Fewer resources and out of school activities
We believe that funding for schools should be levelled-up, not
down, to ensure that no school loses out, and we call on Barnet
Council to make this argument to the Government loudly and clearly
on behalf of local parents and children.
