ALMOST EVERY SCHOOL IN SALFORD TO LOSE FUNDING UNDER TORY EDUCATION POLICY
 

Star date: 28th March 2017

SALFORD SCHOOLS TO BE £11MILLION WORSE OFF...

Almost every school in Salford will have huge funding cuts under new policy drawn up by the Tory Government, states the National Union of Teachers. The union adds that the city's schools will be £11,105,976 worse off by 2019/20 than they were in 2015/16.

"Parents in Salford should be deeply concerned by these damaging cuts that hit almost every school" says Salford NUT Secretary Judith Elderkin. The union has an interactive map showing how each school will be cut.

Following previous analysis by the National Union of Teachers (NUT) which calculated that schools with the poorest pupils in Salford will be the hardest hit under new Tory Government National Funding Formula (see previous Salford Star article – click here), the union has now updated its data to further show that almost every school in Salford will be hit hard by cuts.

The figures, based on Government predictions adjusted for the impact of inflation and cost increases, shows that Salford schools will be £11,105,976 worse off by 2019/20 than they were in 2015/16.

The worst hit school will be Salford City Academy which will see £1,425 lost per pupil, or a total of almost three quarter of a million pounds. Primrose Hill Primary School is set to lose £846 per pupil, or over £280,000, and Riverview Community Primary is set to lose £759 per pupil, or over £340,000.

Meanwhile, nine out of 90 schools in the city face cuts of £455,721 after 2020. These relate to a complicated Government funding formula that sees a 'floor', in which no school should be worse off than 3% per pupil...

Schools on the floor "will receive flat cash settlements for years to come" states the NUT "Some schools will get no more funding until 2025 or even later."

In Salford, nine schools are below the floor and require additional funds, but the NUT explains that "These schools will receive further cuts through flat cash settlements after 2020".

Amongst the worse schools affected are St Philip's CofE Primary School which is 24% below the floor, Dukesgate Academy, which is 6% below the floor, and The Cathedral School St Peter and St John RC Primary School, which is 4% below the floor.

"The Government are breaking their promise to protect school budgets" says Salford NUT Secretary Judith Elderkin "Parents in Salford should be deeply concerned by these damaging cuts that hit almost every school. The Government must act now to protect schools."

Perhaps the Star could ask the NUT representative, why I was told by a employee of Moorside High School that it was not the teacher's responsibility to turn off lights, computers and projectors in their classrooms, when I phoned the school up to suggest they may be able to say some money in October of last year. Problem still exists virtually every night (4 times in last 7 days)- for example over the xmas holidays a projector was left on for the whole two weeks. Whilst I think government cuts are a disgrace and in no way think that turning lights off etc. will save lots of money to make up the shortfall, it is akin to complaining about droughts but leaving the water on when you clean your teeth! If everyone does it's a problem! The NUT should be educating its members to stop wasting money and have more responsibility for their classrooms..... as well as having ago at the government cuts which will impact on education.

NUMBER OF COUNCILLORS COULD BE CULLED IN REVIEW OF WARDS

The number of Salford councillors could be cut in a sweeping review of the city by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England..."The review will re-draw ward boundaries across the city as well as deciding how many councillors should be elected to the council in total" said a spokesperson for the Commission.

Salford currently has three councillors per ward but, with new wards possibly emerging as the city grows, this might be cut to two per ward.

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.

Cash-strapped Salford City Council is to give huge pay rises to senior officers after a 'job evaluation exercise' moved them well up the pay scale. It follows the resignation of the Director of Finance and Corporate Business, and spreading the majority of his salary amongst other re-titled roles.
