school cuts meeting

Unison continues to protest along with others, at the level of funding cuts to schools. Locally we have had a very well attended meeting last friday at the council House with Unison branch members present and officer Carol Garfield spoke.

 

See below a photo of Carol Garfield (ABS for schools in our branch) and Tracy Brabin MP, Shadow minister for Early Years (Who was elected to Jo Cox’s seat) and works on Angela Rayner’s Education team

 

Schools in England are facing the largest real term cuts for a generation:
Birmingham Schools are set to lose £49 million in real terms by 2020, This means a loss of £135,453 (average) per school and £293 (average per pupil). We are urging all our members (not just schools) to write to their MP and raise concerns about funding and ask them to demand that Philip Hammond makes a substantial increase to school funding in the Autumn statement 
• Go to www.schoolcuts.org and see how much your local school is losing
• Email SOS to get involved saveourschoolsbirmingham@gmail.com
• Facebook – Save Our Schools West Midlands
• Twitter - @SOSBirmingham

The meeting was also covered in the Birmingham Post so raising the profile of the campaign.

Also if you are a parent of a  school aged child why not write to your MP and ask them to protest against school funding cuts?
