Skool finances ...
« on: March 20, 2003, 05:18:13 pm »
Being slightly off-topic to the 'admission policy' thread and not knowing BP, I just thought i'd relay the situation in our area where a poor funding settlement from central government will leave many schools having to ..

1. reduce the length of the School week by 1 hour
2. make teachers redundant
3. increase class sizes
4. reduce the amount spent on books and materials.

Morale amoungst School staff is low, strike action is being considered & schools currently operating at a deficit aren't allowed to apply for a grant. Is BP different?

Still, a 1m kerb cleaning expansion project has just been unveiled so we're OK then  :-\
