Support Southampton Schools Against Making Cuts due to Funding Shortfall

We the undersigned petition the council to recognise that school budgets in Southampton are at breaking point with a threat to jobs and the educational opportunities of all children. We, the undersigned, call on Southampton City Council to use all of its powers, including the use of licensed deficits, to make sure they provide funding so no schools will have to make cuts to their services or provision.

We are a diverse group comprised of parents, education workers and interested parties who are united in their deep concern at the effect the devastating cuts to school funding is having and will continue to have on the quality of our childrens' education.
