As our children get ready to break up for the summer, many local schools are facing a looming funding crisis. Due to government policy, schools in Hendon have seen the money they get for each student cut by an average of £250 a year in real terms since 2015. And more cuts are on the way. Rather than standing up for local schools, our do-nothing Conservative MP has supported the cuts. Please share this film. Let the government and our local MP know they need to invest in our schools, not cut them.

We all know that our schools across the country are struggling under the weight of the cuts imposed by the Conservatives over the last 9 years.
In Hendon alone funding has been cut by £250 a child. That means less teachers, less books, less support for special needs and parents being asked to buy material to keep schools going.
As we reach the end of the school year we are launching a campaign in Hendon to tell parents about the effects on our children of these savage cuts and what a Labour government will do to invest in our children and our future.
See how much your local school has been cut by here.
Our Parliamentary Candidate, David Pinto-Duschinsky, wrote to the Barnet Borough Times about the impact of school cuts.
