Kate Green responds to statements by Paul Whiteman NAHT General Secretary that funding cuts are forcing schools to make redundancies

Kate Green MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, responding to statements by Paul Whiteman NAHT General Secretary that funding cuts are forcing schools to make redundancies, said:

 

“The Conservatives have weakened our education system with a decade of real terms cuts to per pupil funding and teacher salaries.

 

“Their stealth cut to the pupil premium is taking more money out of schools at a time when pupils need more support than ever.

 

“Labour wants to see children at the heart of our national recovery, but Conservative choices risk driving teachers out of their classrooms, letting down our children and putting their recovery from this pandemic at risk.”
