London Schools Government Cuts Jobs With New Formula

If the new London School Funding Formula goes ahead and is changed by the current government, London stands to lose over 17000 teaching posts by the year 2020.

Newham could lose over 1074 teaching posts in this scheme, whilst Tower Hamlets will lose approximately 891 teaching posts with Southwark losing over 808 teachers. This areas are some of the most underfunded areas in London. Unsurprisingly the well off areas such as Richmond and Kingston-Upon-Thames will stand to lose less teachers with this new education formula. The cuts not only cut teaching staff, support staff are in for a hit to. There are over 64000 teachers in the capital of London. The next few years will be very telling.

London-Schools-Capital

Central London Schools

Many head teachers have already warned their support staff and teachers, that there will need to me some major cuts over the next couple of years. Some headteachers have even written to parents asking for donations to the school, to fill the major gap that will be inevitable. This is not the ideal solution to the problem.

The figures are based on Department for Education data which shows schools across the capital face a real-terms cut of £360 million in 2018/19, an average of £333 per pupil. – London Evening Standard

If the quotations above is true, expect there to be severe problems in every students education settings. From lower teaching standards to a much more poorer quality of food.

The Education Secretary Justine Greening is trying to rebalance the books and in doing so students are losing a quality of education that’s expected throughout the United Kingdom.

“increased class sizes with fewer teachers and less support for vulnerable children”. – Dr Mary Bousted General Secretary Teaching Union ATL

The Department of Education for England think that the proposed cuts and changes in the budget will help other schools in the long run. But we don’t think so.

Pupils Wind Up Education Inspectors – Willenhall – Edu News UK.

An under-achieving school in Willenhall, United Kingdom has been reported as being rude and impolite to Education Inspectors. According to the BBC this news was reported in Ofsted Reports. 2017

Willenhall School - Education News

Willenhall School UK

 

The Watchdog Report – Reported Several Behavioral and Problematic Issues

  1. Students (sixth-former’s) were afraid to step outside due to the behavioral issues with the younger students.
  2. 70 per cent of teachers chose to leave the school during the 2015 / 2016 school year. Again having issues with younger students.
  3. Students harassed school inspectors by throwing food at them and harassing them in the corridors.
  4. School was inspected in 2017 and more than a third of students continued to be absent.
  5. The quality of teaching was also said to be weak in the report.

These are just some of the problems faced by teachers and other students at this school. It has been also criticized as being one of the most under-achieving schools in the Midlands.

Willenhall E- ACT Academy Letter To Parents

As a result of the report Willenhall E-ACT Academy responded with a letter to parents citing 3 areas of improvement.

  1. Willenhall E-ACT had strong leadership.
  2. They were driving all standards higher – from students behavioral issues to teaching methods.
  3. They are confident that Willenhall Academy will make rapid progress in all issues that arose in the Ofsted Report.

Ofsted’s Reaction

Oftsed said E-ACT “fully recognised the challenges” and had begun to “address aspects of greatest concern”, with its leaders’ judgements “fully in line with inspectors’ experiences and evidence”.

However, it said leaders and sponsors had overseen a decline in standards since a previous inspection in 2015.

“While there is an ambition to address inadequacies and to raise aspirations, there is not yet a sustainable track record in the school to suggest capacity for improvement,” it continued.
