HELP! I'm part of a persecuted minority, not just as a primary headteacher, but head of a school with nearly 600 children. The Government has shown that we're only worth one third of a similarly-sized secondary school.
Now my local education authority is devolving funds on a premises-plus basis, with only a small proportion related to pupi numbers.
What next? At pound;1,400 per child our funding is already more than pound;100 below the lowest Office for Standards in Education quartile. I know we have savings of scale, but we also have increased costs.
Are we becoming the new second-class citizens?
