You may be aware of the campaign that Headteachers in other counties, such as West Sussex have launched, in order to protest at the lack of school funding and the effect on our children and young people. Headteachers and governors in East Sussex have decided to do something similar and we would like to ask you to join in. Please find attached a letter from the Headteacher which mirrors letters sent from East Sussex schools across the county today asking you to support this campaign and write to your MP. You can find out more by following on Twitter and Facebook.
All schools are facing considerable pressures on their budgets; the government claims that funding for schools has remained the same, but this does not take account of the fact that all schools face rising costs due to inflation and other extra charges recently introduced by the government. According to the National Audit Office, this will equate to £3 billion less between 2019 and 2020. Any additional funds suggested by today’s budget announcements are for select types of schools in particular areas and do not make any difference to the core budgets of schools like ours.
How does this affect Heathfield?
Like all schools we are having to re-evaluate hard in the light of “protected budgets” which in effect means no funding for rising costs. Whilst we are undoubtedly looking to make efficiencies we are prioritising the experience for students and staff to ensure that we focus on ensuring the provision and experience for our community is maintained at the high standards we have set out. Many schools across the country have been cost cutting for some time and some feel they have little left to cut. We do have to look to make savings but we will still be able to maintain an offer that matches our very high expectations and ambitions.
However we do need all support from our community to raise the issue as a concern and would value all that you feel able to offer.
