School Funding News

Here are some recent news stories around the web regarding school funding:-

Two Thirds of Teachers Paying to Provide Basics for Students

News article image

Teachers are increasingly paying from their own pockets to provide basic classroom resources and essentials for the pupils they teach, a survey by the NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union, has found.

Teachers say they are increasingly having to dip into their own funds to buy lesson resources, classroom materials and even food, clothing and toiletries for pupils.

One in five teachers said they buy lesson resources with their own money once a week and more than one in ten (12%) say they do this several times a week, with 64% of teachers saying they have purchased paper or stationery for their classroom, 64% arts and crafts materials and 43% textbooks or reading books.

When asked why they had purchased the resources, over half (53%) said it was because of funding pressures on their school. 30% said it was because the resources they are provided with by their school are increasingly out of date or unsuitable and 28% said their school was choosing to spend money on other things rather than purchasing classroom resources.

Empty spaces in primary schools predicted in next three years

News article image

According to North Somerset Council's pupil projections, there will be 2,095 empty spaces in classrooms by 2022.

To prepare for the decline, St Martin's Primary School, in Worle, will reduce its reception intake from 90 to 60 pupils in September 2021.

St Andrew's Primary School in Congresbury will also take 30 pupils instead of 45.

Secondary schools are facing a different predicament with a predicted shortfall of 560 spaces by 2024.

A North Somerset Council spokesman said: “Locally we are seeing a lowering in demand for new school places generally.

“This is to be managed alongside the increases in need for secondary-aged places as the higher primary demand transitions into key stage four and an overall need for new school and pre-school places in areas of residential growth.”

Here’s the Lib Dems’ vision for the school system of the future

News article image

Teachers are overworked, undervalued and underpaid and we need to resource them better, says Layla Moran, setting out the Lib Dems’ vision for the school system

Some new teachers are barely earning the National Living Wage because they are overworked and underpaid. That was the warning from the NEU’s joint General Secretaries this week.

I was deeply saddened reading this news. But it didn’t surprise me. Because if the Conservatives wanted to deliberately alienate the teaching profession, they’ve done a great job.

Take teachers’ pay, for example.

After almost a decade of pay restraint, teachers were hoping that the ending of the public sector pay cap would mean a fresh start. Maybe, just maybe, they’d be rewarded properly for the hours of overtime they put in.
