Why we are striking?
All schools in England will see a real terms cut in funding under government proposals. Some areas of the country will see cuts of up to 25%!
Cuts in funding will result in:
- job losses
- increased workload
- lack of pay progression
- a narrowing of the curriculum
- cuts to entitlements such as maternity leave
WHAT WE HOPE TO ACHIEVE
We hope to keep the pressure on the Government to engage in genuine dialogue with the profession. We want to send the clearest message that we cannot-as professionals-tolerate such an attack on us and our students.
A successful strike day will help keep the pressure on the Government, and to highlight the issue of funding cuts.
