Fair Funding in East Riding Schools

The petition states that as residents in this area, you believe the existing school funding model in England is arbitrary and unfair. The ten best funded areas in England have, on average, received grants of £6300.00 per pupil this year, compared to an average of £4,200.00 per pupil in the ten most poorly funded areas (we fall in the bottom ten). Therefore, as the  petitioners you welcome the Government’s commitment to introduce fairer school funding and request that the House of Commons supports the earliest possible introduction of a new National Funding Formula for schools in England.

The petition must be returned on the 23rd October so we have two weeks to acquire as many signatures as we can. If you would like to sign, you will find the petition in the main entrance of school. We would be very grateful if you could take a moment to show your support and sign.
