The latest news from SCHOOLS NorthEast and the region
Schools North East today welcomed the Department for Education’s new strategy for teacher recruitment and retention, part of which will be rolled out in the North East first.
Chris Zarraga, Schools North East Director of Operations, said: “Schools North East would welcome a wider debate following this report around school exclusions and disadvantaged children in the North East.
Following today’s announcement from the Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond that there is to be £400 million funding for schools to ‘buy the little extras they need’, Mike Parker, director of Schools North East, said:
"The Chancellor started his Budget off in jovial fashion declaring he was 'Phil the Fiscal' but his crass comments on funding the 'little things' in education is more akin to Phil the Flippant. His comments deny the depth of underfunding in schools, forcing them to write to parents to beg for support and seeing teachers made redundant, curriculum narrowing and slashing the vital enrichment in schools that support the most deprived.
ENGLAND’S largest regional schools network has today welcomed the Government’s decision to invest £24m to improve school outcomes in the North East.
