Schools in Tower Hamlets are facing the worst education cuts in history. Can you join a protest on Monday 26th June to fight for our children’s right to quality education?
In one of the poorest boroughs in London and the UK, local children need the best start in life possible. While all London schools are expected to experience significant cuts to their spending power, the areas most severely impacted by school cuts are Tower Hamlets, Newham, and Southwark.
Over half of schools in London are set to see a reduction in funding with projections in Tower Hamlets of £359 per pupil less to spend — the biggest drop in the capital. In Newham there will be £282 less and in Southwark £278 less.
Teacher unions are working closely together, nationally and locally, to campaign for increased investment in our schools and for a fully-funded pay rise for staff. But they need support from parents like us.
The Big School Trip
Please join the school cuts protests on the 26th of June 2023 to show support for our teachers. A coalition of parents and education staff will meet at Tower Hamlets Town Hall 4:30 pm.
Paying the people who educate our children well is important. Teaching should be an attractive profession for intelligent people who want to support children’s development but right now our education system is losing talent to supermarkets because of a lack of investment and poor pay.
There will be postcards ready for parents and staff to sign, which will be collected and delivered to the Department for Education. Come and pick one up and show support for schools in Tower Hamlets.
