Mapping School Funding Cuts
The UK government's 'Fair Funding' reforms for schools will mean that in real terms 92% of UK schools will see cuts in their funding. You can find out which of your local schools will lose out and by how much on this new interactive map.
The National Union of Teachers and the Association of Teachers and Lecturers has released the School Cuts interactive map. Using the map you can find out how much your local schools will suffer under the government's new funding regime. Enter your postcode and local schools will be shown on the map using '+' and '-' markers. The '+' markers show schools that will see an increase in funding. The '-' markers show schools that will experience cuts in real terms (you are unlikely to see a '+' marker on the map).
If you select a school on the map you can find out how much money that school is losing. You can also view how much money that is per pupil and how many teachers could be lost (based on the average teacher's salary).
