Day of action on school funding

Friday 26 May / After school / Cambridge and Ely

The new Fair Funding for All Schools group in Cambridgeshire has organized a day of action on Friday, the last day of half term, with parents at several schools taking part. This growing, national campaign demands that the government should protect per-pupil funding in real terms for the term of the next parliament, and provide additional funding so that no school loses by the National Funding Formula which, as it stands, will increase funding for some schools at the expense of others. The schoolcuts website shows with frightening clarity how individual schools will be affected.

Meeting on the education funding crisis

Tuesday 9 May / 7.30 p.m. / NCI Sports and Social Club, 1 Holland Street, Cambridge CB4 3DL
