Sandy welcomes Labour plans for £5.6bn annual boost to school budgets

The Conservative Government is imposing real terms cuts on every school in Ipswich.

Tory education plans mean Copleston High School’s budget will be slashed by £453,454 a year.  That’s £305 per pupil, equivalent to losing 12 teachers. And other schools in Ipswich face similar cuts.

By reversing repeated cuts to the corporation tax rate made by the Tories since 2010, Labour believes it could fund a series of ambitious pledges, including:

  • Abolishing university tuition fees, and restoring maintenance grants for less well-off students.
  • Investing an extra £5.6bn per year in our schools, to guarantee that five-, six- and seven-year olds will not be taught in classes of more than 30.
  • Extending free adult education to allow working people to upgrade their skills.
  • Restoring the Educational Maintenance Allowance, to help 16-to-18-year-olds who are studying full-time.

We guarantee that under a Labour Government, no school will lose out from the controversial reforms to the national funding formula. Conservative plans will force Ipswich’s schools to lay off teachers, or to leave vacancies unfilled.

Under the current Tory government, funding per pupil is projected to fall by 8% in real terms by 2020.

Vote for Sandy Martin on June 8th to reverse these cuts and invest in our children’s future.
