Governing Matters

Steve Edmonds, Director for Advice and Guidance sheds light on how the school funding situation is worsening and will cause severe harm now and in the future. The government need to act now to tackle this bleak situation, says Steve Edmonds.

“We’ve worked hard to eliminate a significant inherited deficit so we have no reserves to fall back on. Energy costs will be £250k higher, additional funding will be completely swallowed up by this and the likely (but deserved and necessary) staff pay increases are standing still for 2022-23. We don’t expect an uplift so this will mean cuts.”
