Parent power is the only way this issue can go now – politicians need to get the message from the voting majority, they patently do not listen to professional voices. A Chair of Governors, BANES
Calling all parents across Bath and North East Somerset!
Our schools are facing a funding crisis and it’s affecting our children now. To meet budgets, head teachers are being forced to make tough decisions.
On the 8th June over 1000 of us gathered to march in protest from Queen Square to the Royal Crescent in Bath.
On the 21st May 2019, 72 head teachers from across Bath and North East Somerset took the step of writing to parents and carers to call attention to the crisis and ask for support. The letter from our head teachers went to 25,000 homes. Click to read the letter from BANES heads and press release.
Over 3,000 people have signed our petition.
What’s next? We’ll keep you posted. Join our Facebook pages (Fair Funding for all Schools – BANES) or follow us on Twitter @FairBath.
Our schools are passing breaking point. First, austerity stripped them to the bone. Now, keeping children and staff safe during C-19 is bankrupting them. Please support this campaign to fund our schools through Covid.
