We say NO to SCC proposal to cut SEN funding for schools

Surrey County Council has presented a proposal to cut school funding for pupils with Special Educational Needs (SEN). This proposal will affect 67 primary and 2 secondary schools in Surrey. The funding for SEN pupils is a tiny amount compared with the Council's overall spending and we think the SCC proposal risks the futures of children who should be their top priority. This is the worst possible time to apply a funding cut to schools that will damage the education of all pupils and hamper the ability of teachers to bring out the best in the next generation.

The following schools in Surrey Heath are affected by this proposed cut:

• Heather Ridge Infant School
• Valley End CofE Infant School
• Windlesham Village Infant School
• Lightwater Village School
• Lakeside Primary School
• Gordon's School

We believe the SCC Cabinet team should withdraw this proposal with immediate effect.

Thank you for your interest but we are no longer running this campaign.
