SALFORD SCHOOLS FACE BIGGEST CUTS FOR A GENERATION
 

Star date: 4th November 2016

TORY CUTS OF UP TO 15% WILL LEAD TO LOSS OF TEACHERS IN SALFORD

New calculations by teachers' unions, the NUT and ATL, show that Salford education faces real term cuts of over 9million by 2020, with the forecast loss of 252 teachers and 320 per pupil.

The unions have produced an interactive map that shows the affect on every school in the area with some, like St Sebastian's Primary and Salford City Academy, facing cuts of up to 15%. How will the Tory Government decimate your kid's school?

Salford Schools Cuts from Tory Government

The National Union of Teachers (NUT) and Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL) have today launched an interactive map showing real term Tory Government cuts to education, by school and council, in every single area of the country.

Their calculations show that the most disadvantaged children are likely to face the biggest funding cuts when the Government reallocates school funding. And Salford is no exception, with forecast cuts of 9,413,914 by 2020 based on the new national funding formula. Salford would also face losing 252 teachers and average of 320 per pupil.

Some Salford schools will face cuts of up to 15%, according to the interactive map, including St Sebastian's RC Primary School in Douglas Green (15%), Salford City Academy (15%), River View Primary in Broughton (13%), Holy Cross and All Saints RC Primary in Eccles (13%), Lewis Street Primary in Eccles (12%), Brentnall Primary in Broughton (12%) and St Paul's C of E Primary in Kersal (11%).

"No head teacher should be put in the position of increasing class sizes, leaving building repairs undone or cutting staff and resources simply to balance the books" says Kevin Courtney, General Secretary of the NUT "Nor should any parent accept this for their child. We are one of the richest countries in the world. We can and we should be funding our schools properly."

Mary Bousted, General Secretary of ATL, adds "We urge the Government to increase the overall funding for schools. If it just reallocates the existing budget many children will lose out, with some of the most deprived children being hit hardest. It is ill-conceived to think the formula for schools' funding can be reformed alongside real terms cuts to the overall schools' budget.

"No school should be forced to cope with a drop in funding that will jeopardise its ability to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum and recruit and retain staff" she adds "All children deserve a fair chance to succeed and should not suffer because schools are under-resourced by the Government and teachers over-worked."

Prime Minister, Theresa May, and Education Secretary, Justine Greening, are apparently changing the schools formula under the guise of `fairer funding' but according to these teachers' unions they "intend only to shift the already inadequate overall school funding around the country, rather than do the right thing which is to increase it and ensure the most disadvantaged benefit".

Instead it's the most disadvantaged children who are likely to suffer most. While Salford schools face huge forecast cuts of up to 15% and an average of 320 per pupil, the unions' figures show that Theresa May's constituency of Maidenhead would lose out by only 5%, or 234 per pupil, and Chancellor Philip Hammond's constituency of Runnymede and Weybridge should expect to be only 4% worse off, or 190 per pupil.

'MANIAC' TRUMP NOT WELCOME HERE

A red open top double decker bus toured Salford this morning covered in slogans reading 'Trump Go Home'. It stopped off at Salford Precinct, Salford Royal Hospital, Langworthy Road and the Civic Centre before heading off to Manchester.

The bus was sponsored by Swinton-based Mary Monson Solicitors, and Mary Monson told the Salford Star that "the idea that he'll come and be feted like a respectable person is appalling". Meanwhile Paul Kelly, President of Salford TUC, called Donald Trump an "ultra-capitalist maniac".
