It is a national scandal that our schools need to turn to charity to make sure they have the resources they need – Angela Rayner

Commenting on a primary school asking Children in Need to support them with additional funding, Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Education, said:

“It is a national scandal that our schools need to turn to charity to make sure they have the resources they need, after the Tories slashed their budgets for the first time in a generation.

“Every candidate for the Conservative leadership should be committed to reversing the cuts they have inflicted on our schools, but instead they are planning to give away billions of pounds in tax cuts to high earners.

“Labour will reverse Tory cuts to our schools and increase per pupil funding in real terms as part of a National Education Service.”
