Schools across Harrow face a funding crisis as thanks to government cuts.

Over the last two years schools in our areas have lost £2.8bn and face even more cuts to their budgets. Figures from the NUT show that schools in Harrow will have an extra £10.5 million in real terms cut from their budgets by 2020.

Such savage cuts mean that each pupil in Harrow will receive £366 less than they currently receive, meaning a loss of 208. In some schools, pupils have lost up-to £900 per pupil.

As MP for Harrow West, and former school teacher, I am concerned about the impact of these cuts and has launched this campaign to fight for fair funding for our schools.

I was a teacher before entering Parliament, so ensuring that children have the best possible start in life has always been one of my top priorities. Schools have already faced a real term cut in the past two years, and this cannot go on without having a negative impact on our children’s education.

I hope you will support our campaign and help us send a strong message to the Chancellor that we value our excellent schools in Harrow and want to keep them that way.

After all, if Theresa May can find £1bn for the DUP to keep herself in power, she should be able to find the money to make sure schools in Harrow get the funding they need.
