House of Commons Hansard
Fair Funding for Schools
16 November 2017
Volume 631

The petition of residents of Ilkley and Wharfedale,

Declares that the cuts in spending in schools in Ilkley and Wharfedale will lead to redundancies amongst teachers and teaching assistants, increasing class sizes, reduction in the range of subjects on offer and a decline in educational standards.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to reverse the cuts that have been made to school budgets in Ilkley and Wharfedale; further to protect per pupil funding in real terms in the schools of Ilkley and Wharfedale over the lifetime of this Parliament; and further to ensure no school loses out in real terms as a result of any new funding formula.

And the petitioners remain, etc.—[Presented by John Grogan.]
