Head Teachers march!

Today I was one of approximately 2000 headteachers who marched on Downing Street to deliver a letter to the chancellor Philip Hammond (attached to this newsletter for your information). The reason we did this was because schools, including Kendall, are struggling to cope with the 8% funding gap that the government has imposed on schools. At Kendall this has meant that as support staff have left I have had to make the difficult decision not to replace them and this will continue if we are to avoid setting a deficit budget. This is not what any Head would wish to do, as ultimately it will impact on pupil provision, but the reality is that the money just isn't there. Hopefully our pleas will not fall on deaf ears and this government will find the money to properly fund our children's education. Mrs French
