School budgets

Volume 638: debated on Tuesday 20 March 2018

The petition of residents of Craven Ward,

Declares that the cuts in spending to school budgets in Craven Ward, in the constituency of Keighley and Ilkley, will lead to further staff redundancies, increasing class sizes, reductions 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 Craven; further to protect per pupil funding in real terms in the schools of Craven 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.]
