Worth Less?

Dear colleagues

Worth Less? funding update - November 2018

Message from Jules White, Tanbridge House School

We are focusing on £500m emergency SEND / HNB funding. This will help some of our most disadvantaged families and reduce the impact on school budgets if HNB transfers are stopped - read Half a billion shortfall in school SEND funding 'crisis'.

Worth Less? wrote to 30 prominent (mainly Conservative) MPs requesting cross party support for emergency funding. Currently we have 6 replies and 6 yeses. Oliver Letwin, Steve Brine, Sarah Wollaston, Julian Lewis (all Con), James Frith (Lab), Norman Lamb (Lib Dem).

We are collaborating and receiving great support from parent groups, professional associations, Heads RT, F40 and SSAT. (Nick Wergan is speaking for Worth Less? at the SSAT Conference on 5 December).
