    Default New plan for funding schools

    Grammar schools in England may ask parents for hundreds of pounds a year to cope with funding cuts, their head teachers' association has warned.
    A majority of grammars will be left worse off by proposed funding changes, according to analysis by the Grammar School Heads' Association.
    A number of Conservative MPs are urging the government to change its plans.
    But the Department for Education said it was ending a postcode lottery in school funding.

    The new system is designed to support deprived areas by reallocating existing funding.


    One head who attended the meeting - Sarah Burns of the Sandbach Boys School free school, Cheshire - said she would have to consider running her school on a four-day week, scrapping the sixth form or cutting arts subjects from the syllabus.
    She said: "They are absolutely realistic possibilities given the level of cuts and the fact that we've already cut to the bone.
    "Given those levels of cuts we will have to take some really hard decisions like those."
    A spokesman for the Department for Education said: "We are going to end the historic postcode lottery in school funding.
    "Under the proposed national schools funding formula, more than half of England's schools will receive a cash boost in 2018-19."

    Yes, redirect funding away from those that don't deserve to be educated. The fact that schools may be asking for money is even mentioned as an option usually means that they will. When parents can't afford the charges will the parents be fined for not sending their kids to that school? May as well make people who can't pay pay suffer some more *shrug*

    Gaston. Mate, your magic when it comes to facts figers, the national debt etc

    what about when you dial 999 for an ambulance, the target is 8 mins or something
    why not they take the details of accident or heart attack etc, then dispatch the ambulance
    but then play 4 minute long adverts down the phone, when crew arrive they ask
    questions about the adverts, if not answered they drive off, the 8 mins start
    30 seconds after the last advert.

    this willhelp

    1) national debt
    2) anbulabce targets
    3) bussiness
    4) undertakers

    At one time the chief ambulance office in this area used to park resting ambulances, complete with crew, close to accident hostspots - which are well known, that way if there was an accident they used to be there in minutes. Makes sense to me. They stopped doing that a number of years ago and the response times increased as a result. I dare say they probably make them go back to the central ambulance station, wherever that is, to waste time. Ambulance services are now funded a different way and as such they have less resources to carry out thei jobs. On tope of that, since winter is a surprise apparently (to the DOH) so there is no forward planning in teh influx of extra patients/beds that ambulances and their crews have to sit outside hospitals for hours waiting to drop patients off.

    You missed these fund raisers
    5. Buy a lottery ticket in the ambulance. They will then drive with blue lights on
    6. Offer relatives at scene ticket to watch them perform roadside repairs
    7. Have a raffle at scene with good prizes
    8. Play a Family fortunes game called "diagnoses guesses"
    9. Run a supermarket in the attic sweep. Neighbours get to rush into the house and empty it of anything valuable in 5 minutes whilst the patient is on the stretcher
    Have I missed any?

    The Treasury has taken back ?384m originally promised for schools in England - at a time when head teachers are protesting about a cash crisis.
    The money had been announced last year to fund a plan to require all schools to become academies.
    But the Department for Education has revealed that when the compulsory academy plan was ditched, the Treasury took back most of this extra funding.
    Heads said this was "outrageous" when schools could not "make ends meet".
    But the Department for Education said the return of funds was appropriate if a project did not go ahead.

    Crasy, we pay our taxes, for the eastern europens to come across and be programmed in our skools, then giverment withdraws funding.

    if the younger generation dont get programmed properly, ingland will end up a laughing stock across the workd.

    OFF TOPIC:-

    There is here in Ingland a doctor apart from his skin color you would not know
    he was imported from africa, unable to speak ANY inglish.

    He when in his default country was a proclaimers fan, as he walked 10 miles to skool, then 10 miles home for prigramming.


    He can read/write big long medical words & has the highest doctor award there be.

    we should be able to prigrame next generation to do that.


    what if apple tgat make the iShit big fire & killed EVERYBODY in the building
    then what, who replaces them?

    Forgot to mention most Jews and Muslims children’s go to private schools build by there community and all paid by parents most of them on dole, so the govt is saving 30% when most ethnic’s parents are contributing to funding schools and were is the rest of money used for those in need in private sector?

    By claiming 'dole' you mean the taxpayer is paying for the private schools since it is teh taxpayer who pays for 'dole', in which case the government is saving nothing.

    What you are saying is parents on dole gets extra money from govt to plash out if there children’s are going to private school!!! That’s not the way you see it, not every parents on dole and those on dole have a very tight budget to live on, the way I look at it this way why are grammar school funded by our govt?

    I never said anything of the sort, now you're just making it up. All 'dole' money is paid by the taxpayers, so however you look at it, so whatever that money is spent on; it is spending the taxpayers money and the workers of this country are paying for it.
