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: 711 signatures

This is going to impact in real terms on our children’s future, reducing subjects open to them and so limiting their choices and their path through life. It is callous and short-sighted.

These cuts are are crippling to the limited support available for children with SEND in a borough with one of the highest pc of disabled children and also when numbers of children with disabilities assessed as needing support are increasing significantly every year (see RBG figures)

Short-sighted madness to make cuts to education at a time when the borough’s schools are returning such impressive results.

My child attends The wonderful and diverse Plumcroft, they are already struggling .Cutting funding for our schools is not nurturing a generation, it is starving them of a basic right and their opportunities to grow and contribute to their families, society and our futures.

Doing the unthinkable to our state education. Why do people tolerate this ill considered and incompetent proposal, which will have a devastating effect on the lives of this and future generations? When multi-national corporations are only required to pay 3% tax on their multi million pound/dollar revenues, when funding is diverted elsewhere to pursue other political agenda’s, this is not a “we are doing it because we need to save money/we don’t have the money issue”. Did we really sign up for this in the last election? Was there a pledge by this government before the last election not to cut funding for state schools? Have the public been lied to? Why is this being tolerated?

Thank you for highlighting this issue. For several years schools have already been having to make cuts. Methods employed have been by increasing class sizes, having whole classes ‘taught’ by untrained Teaching Assistants and replacing experienced, skilled teachers with a series of temporary supply teachers. None of these methods are conducive to good educational provision and our children deserve better.

After years of trying to get schools in a better state it is unthinkable to ask them to absorb the cuts.

Education should be #1 priority for Government in conjunction with Health. Cut other things (Trident), tighten tax loopholes not make these cuts
