Stop Tory Education Cuts


Schools in Greenwich look set to see their annual budget cut by over £24million by 2019 – the equivalent of losing at least 671 teachers. This would have a devastating impact on local schools and would lead to increased class sizes, loss of school staff and cuts to extra-curricular activities and resources.

This is effectively a tax on our children’s future.

Please sign below to oppose these latest cuts to hit Greenwich children.

Goal: 146 signatures

The main difference between the Grammar Schools and the Comprehensive is the size of the class one teaches, cut the grant cut the teaching staff. Is this a system to put us all back to the ‘1950’

As a retired Headteacher I am appalled at the future for our children due to this climate of vicious Tory cuts in education and health

Money spent on children’s education today will benefit them and the country for the rest of their lives. To retain teachers, at present a problem, working conditions must not deteriorate further. I reject this regressive, short-sighted policy of cuts.

Joanne Sanderson. How can we ever have an educated population, which we say we want and need, if we contually deprive schools of proper funding and staff.

As a former pupil of Gordon School with friends who have children attending this lovely school today, I am shocked at the extent of these cuts. How can a school invest for it’s future. Teachers who are retiring will no doubt not be replaced, books will not be refreshed or updated, popular after school activities cut, and no doubt pressure will be placed upon parents to fill the substantial funding gap. This government is a disgrace – it campaigns on prudence and steering the country into calm waters and in another breath wastes billions on pointless projects like renewing Trident, building HS2, bailing out the banks and building several new nuclear power stations whilst at the same time failing to invest in the NHS and failing to collect the correct level of taxes from large corporations. Successive governments are failing the people of this country and their actions are affecting the future of our children.

As an ex pupil of Gordon School in the 1960’s I am shocked to see how much money will be cut from the school’s budget by this government by 2019 – truly shocking especially when this government bangs on about quality of education and the importance of having an educated workforce. We have tens of billions to spend on Trident, new Chinese built nuclear power stations and endless amounts of money for overseas wars that do little for our security at home and yet we still fail to invest in our children who are this country’s future!! What a sad, sad state of affairs.
