Fair Funding for All Schools Campaign

The parents are coming!


We are a national campaign set up by a group of parents calling for Fair Funding for All Schools.


Did you know that all schools in England are facing the biggest

real term cuts in a generation? Neither did we. The Government is telling us that spending in schools is protected.

But schools across the country are facing a growing funding crisis caused by real terms cuts to school budgets at a time of rising pupil numbers and increasing staffing and running costs.


With school budgets shrinking, the government is now bringing in a new National Funding Formula that will redistribute school funding in a way that will see many

schools losing even more money.


The combination of budget cuts and the National Funding Formula means that over 90 per cent of schools in England will see net funding reduced over the next four years.


Find out the impact on YOUR school here:


We think that cuts of this scale could lead to:

  • increased class sizes
  • loss of teaching and support staff
  • less support for children and young people
  • fewer subject choices
  • fewer resources and out of school activities


Your school will be working with you to limit the damage and

protect your children’s education. But in one of the richest

countries in the world, we shouldn’t be underfunding any of

our schools.


We call on ALL parents across the country to join our campaign for Fair Funding for All Schools.


Take Action Now

Parents and pupils uniting across the country and making our voice heard is hugely powerful. The government will be forced to listen. Our MPs will forced to listen.


We are many and we are strong.

Write to MPs and journalists:

Find model letters and other resources at our website. MPs from all parties already support our cause but their voice in Parliament will be strengthened if they can cite the support of thousands of parents from across the country. And newspapers need to know what’s going on.


Set up a group at your school – have a meeting and invite a speaker:

Get in touch and we’ll find speakers to come and meet parents at your school. Even better set up a campaign group in your community. Talk to your friends, get them interested, get in touch with us, spread the word. Download our guide on how to organise in your area.
