500 school headteachers write open letter to Theresa May warning education system will collapse under £3bn cuts plan

“Ministers should no longer be allowed to claim that school funding is protected.

“All schools are operating under ­unacceptable levels of financial pressure.

“This is a result of the Government’s choice to freeze spending.

“But the Government is flatly refusing to admit the reality. Until they do, all schools are at risk.”

The letter to Mrs May highlights her empty promise made on the steps of Downing of creating a “country that works for everyone”. It read: “That begins with our children. Yet schools are facing cuts of £3billion. This will have a massive impact on young people.”

Shadow Education Secretary Angela Raynor.

Shadow Education Secretary Angela Rayner added: “Seven years of Tory failure have led to the most severe spending cuts to schools in a generation. It is time the PMr listened to teachers and parents, and woke up to the crisis she has created.”

NAHT’s conference in Telford, Shrops, today warns ­education will be a disaster if the Tories get in at the next election and continue their war on schools.
