Headteachers from across Kingston have written to Conservative Ministers, MPs and councillors to warn of a funding crisis in local schools.
In a strongly-worded letter to national and local Conservative politicians, Kingston’s school heads have attacked “stealth cuts” to local education budgets, and called for an urgent “boost to school funding” before it’s “too late”. The letter warns of a recruitment and retention crisis too.
Analysis of Conservative spending plans show Kingston schools losing £6.1 million by 2020 - a loss of £302 for every pupil - with 165 teachers sacked in the Royal Borough.
