Schools in London and other urban areas are set to lose out to rural and coastal towns [Image: Gideon Mendel/Corbis/Getty].

Let’s not forget, also, that schools with solar panels will be forced to pay increased business rates for no very good reason, thanks to stupid Tory policies.

Headteachers are writing to parents highlighting the budget crisis facing their schools and warning that teachers’ jobs will be cut under the government’s school funding plans for England.

The letters, sent out to parents in the run-up to the budget on Wednesday, are part of an increasingly organised campaign against the revised national funding formula in which schools in London and other urban areas will lose out to rural and coastal towns.

Families are being urged to lobby their MPs, write to ministers and attend local meetings to fight the changes, which coincide with a growing crisis in overall education funding, with schools being asked to find savings of £3bn.
