Issues covered:

As schools return to begin the new school year Head Teachers are undoubtedly focused on how they can continue to deliver the high standard of education that Northern Ireland expects with significantly less money in their budgets. The Belfast Telegraph highlighted the issue on 20th June reporting that Post Primary Principals have called for urgent action on school budgets cuts.

“The letter from the Area Learning Communities calls for immediate action to rethink the allocation of the defined budget for education, including a complete restructuring of the amount of money which is absorbed by non-front line services and a greater delegation of funds to post-primary schools”.
