‘We are fed up waiting’: More than 5,000 headteachers set to march on Downing Street to demand more cash for schools

Headteacher Jules White, leader of the grassroots campaign group Worth Less?, has warned that a growing number of school leaders are “fed up waiting” for vital funding as pressures become intolerable. “There is a real feeling that enough is enough,” Mr White told The Independent. 

Now more than 5,000 heads from across the country, from Cumbria to Cornwall, are expected to miss school to attend a second demonstration in Westminster on Friday 27 September to make their case.

On the march, Mr White added: “We will be relentlessly reasonable. We will be in our Marks and Spencer’s workwear to make our point.

“This is not some sort of militant strike. This is just dedicated teachers.”
