Worth Less Campaign

As mentioned in the February newsletter, a group of Dorset headteachers have formed a campaign called Worth Less aimed at getting a fairer funding in education.
They are getting increasingly worried about the financial position of Dorset schools and feel that parental support is crucial to getting action on this matter. You can read the letter sent to the Chancellor or the Exchequer here.

You can also look at the School Cuts website to see the likely effect on local schools’ future budgets.
