Standing up for Manchester Withington

PLEDGE 1: Fighting funding cuts in our schools

Under the Tories, every school in south Manchester will lose out.  The worst affected schools, such as Parrs Wood and Chorlton High School, will lose almost £900 per pupil, the equivalent of 30 teachers (see below table for full breakdown).

I recently asked Theresa May what she would cut to balance school budgets, but she couldn’t answer. The only alternative to the Tories is a strong Labour Party committed to defending our schools.

I saw how a Labour government rebuilt many of the schools in our area, and as a former governor at several local schools I’m committed to our childrens’ future.  I will continue to fight against these cuts to ensure that every child in south Manchester gets a great education.
