Please support Heidi Allen in her bid for fairer funding for Cambridgeshire. You can find the press release and the suggested responses in the links below.
Dear Parish Clerk,
I have recently launched a joint campaign with local Head Teachers for our pupils to be given a fairer deal in the Government’s National Funding Formula. In conversation with Justine Greening, she has made it clear to me that in order to stand the best chance of changing the DfE’s proposed funding formula, significant consultation responses will be key.
As such, I would be most grateful if you could encourage as many people as possible: aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends and the wider school community to stand up for fairer funding for South Cambridgeshire pupils. This is a complex and technical consultation, so in addition to the press release published last Friday, please find attached a summary of pre-drafted responses which we believe capture the core of our concerns. We hope this will give people the confidence to tackle an otherwise complex task. For those who are not comfortable with doing this, there is also the option to write directly to Justine Greening or sign a petition at your local school.
If you have any questions at all, please do contact Paula in my office.
Thank you in advance of your support; it is vital we provide a deluge of responses to the DfE!
