The Tories’ so-called Fairer Funding for Schools

Having just looked at the website I have discovered just how badly the Morpeth area will suffer under the government’s much acclaimed fairer funding scheme. It makes interesting reading to see that, since the government values our excellent schools so much, all of their budgets have been cut!

Abbeyfields     Cut       8%

All Saints          Cut       9%

Chantry           Cut      8%

Goosehill         Cut       5%

KEVI                 Cut       12%

Newminster    Cut       11%

St Robert’s       Cut       7%

Stobhillgate     Cut       9%

This will impact negatively on the education of our children.
