Completed petition Protect school funding or admit to the weakening of service provision

We call upon the Welsh Government to protect funding to schools and, if they cannot, to acknowledge the impact of cuts on educational provision, particularly for our most vulnerable learners.

As cuts continue to council budgets, and these cuts are passed on to schools, governing bodies are being asked to make impossible decisions about which vital educational services should be removed from our schools.

This will mean reduced provision for pupils with additional learning needs, less support for vulnerable learners, a narrowed curriculum choice, insufficient learning resources and dilapidated buildings.

These are not the foundations on which schools can be expected to construct and implement a world leading educational curriculum.
