Upcoming general election and education messages


A number of schools across the country have published information regarding funding and how budgets have been affected by recent constraints and economic difficulties.  In these publications they have suggested that parents pay close attention to the education messages being given by all the different political parties leading up to the general election. The governors of Belper School and Sixth Form Centre have been managing funding reductions over a number of years, taking proportionate measures to support the smooth financial running of the school. However the latest funding and cost increase projections indicate that this school, in common with many schools across the country, will now struggle to balance the books in the difficult years ahead. The governors are concerned about the projected financial situation and consequently the school supports the wider suggestions of studying the educational standpoints of all the parties as the election date approaches
