Bournemouth - Council mulls education cuts

22nd January 2010 at 00:00

Funding for school consultants and improvement officers could be cut in Bournemouth as council officials try to save thousands of pounds this year.

Money for advanced skills teachers could also be cut, saving #163;185,000, and there will be less administrative help for governors in the town.

Bournemouth Borough Council needs to save almost #163;200,000 from its education budget in 201112. Possible savings so far identified by councillors add up to #163;393,000 and they are set to decide on what should get the cut.

Other suggestions are getting rid of the programme leader for the Building Schools for the Future project, which would save #163;53,000 and stopping outreach work at two schools, which would in turn save #163;50,000. Ending a subsidy to a play association would save #163;35,000.

The savings have to be made because of the council's commitment to 3 per cent efficiency savings every year. KM.
