  • 80% of respondents said, “schools would not have enough funding to meet “essential needs” over the next 12 months”
  • savings planned include, “redundancies, a reduction in the number of courses on offer and increasing class sizes.
  • Many schools are also proposing to cut spending on equipment and teachers’ CPD”
  • some schools “could even be forced to reduce opening hours to avoid insolvency”
  • children’s education must not be “sacrificed on the altar of deficit reduction”. – ASCL
