One in three headteachers cut back on staff due to school funding pressures, survey says

The Independent is reporting that a survey has found that one in three headteachers are cutting back on staff due to school funding pressures.

More than a third of headteachers have had to cut back on teachers due to a squeeze on funding, a survey from a school leaders’ union suggests. 

Almost two in three (65 per cent) school leaders strongly feel that cuts have negatively affected school performance, a report from the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) found.

And more than a fifth (21 per cent) of headteachers say they had budgets in deficit this academic year – a 13 percentage point increase since 2015.
