THE county’s secondary schools could lose an average of six teachers per schools if a new funding formula goes ahead, it has been warned.
Sarah Carter, the secretary of Oxfordshire’s branch of the National Union of Teachers, told the Union’s conference the new formula would hit the county hard.
She also told the conference weekly reorganisations were taking place in schools in Oxfordshire as they prepare to have funding cut.
It comes after the Oxford Mail reported that the government’s new funding formula, for 2018/19, could lead to schools being forced to cut subjects due to staff shortages.
Wolvercote and Cutteslowe primary schools could both be set to lose more than £200,000 with the new system.
Last month an Oxfordshire branch of the Fair Funding For All Schools pressure group was founded made up of parents across the county.
