SAVE OUR BARNET NURSERIES AND SCHOOLS

SAVE OUR BARNET NURSERIES AND SCHOOLS

We demand that Theresa Villiers MP, lobbies for an adequate level of funding for the nurseries and schools which serve so many children in her constituency.

Why is this important?

Barnet has already lost one nursery provider very recently due to funding cuts. Other nurseries are trying everything to stay open. There are a number of schools and nurseries which are struggling to keep their gates open due to the strain of budget cuts. It has forced many schools to make difficult decisions like cutting numbers of teaching assistants , SEND support staff, some have been forced to close early, asking parents for donations and relying on parents to volunteer in the classroom for interventions.

Parents, teachers, headteachers and governors have created a grassroots campaign to organise against school and nursery cuts. Find out more by following @BarnetStop on Twitter.
