Our MP, Helen Hayes, along with Cllr Peter John, Harriet Harman MP and Neil Coyle MP, recently met the Schools Minister, Nick Gibb MP to make the case against the cuts to funding for our local schools.for our local schools.
Below Are the thoughts of our MP, Helen Hayes, and a link to the letter she has sent to the Secretary of State for Education.
Over the past 20 years, the quality of education in London has been transformed. Almost all of the schools in Dulwich and West Norwood are good or outstanding. As a parent of primary aged children in a local school I see every week how our local teachers and support staff deliver a brilliant education in an area where there are high levels of deprivation, high numbers of children with English as an Additional Language and special educational needs.
The government is putting our excellent local schools at risk, with a change in the funding formula which will see money taken away from our local schools to give to schools in other parts of the country. I am campaigning along with local parents and teachers and Lambeth and Southwark Labour councillors against this change.
