Our campaign has the direct support of forty three local authorities and their School Forums – but is also backed by hundreds of Members of Parliament representing poorly funded areas; thousands of individual elected councillors and council officers; countless headteachers, teachers and governors; trade union members; and parents.

f40 authorities have between them 9,002 schools (that’s 41% of schools in England) and those schools cater for 2,817,857 pupils (nearly 36% of all England’s pupils).

Our member authorities are among the worst funded in the country in terms of per pupil funding.
