School cuts latest

The updated Schoolcuts website, supported by NUT, ATL, GMB, NAHT, UNISON and Unite – now shows how the Government’s own National Funding Formula proposals will, when combined with its funding freeze, affect each school.

The Government has accused funding campaigners of scaremongering, but the updated figures are worse than previously predicted. See how your local schools are affected.

Statement re NUT and ATL amalgamation

The NUT and ATL held special conferences on Saturday 5 November at which delegates welcomed the progress made in negotiations on the amalgamation of the two unions to form a new union. The conferences endorsed the rules of the new union, to be called the National Education Union. This decision will now be put to the members of both unions for approval in ballots to be held in the spring term.
