Calling all Parents - Fair Funding for all Schools - Mass Lobby of MPs

11/10/2017


Tuesday, 24 October 2017 - 11.00 a.m. - 4.00 p.m.

UNISON are supporting the Fair Funding for all Schools Campaign and their Lobby of Parliament on Tuesday, 24 October.

The aim is to bring as many constituents as possible - parents, staff and school leaders - to meet with MPs to ask them to make the case for a proper funding settlement for schools in the budget scheduled for November.

You will have the opportunity to highlight to your MP, your concern about the impact of the funding cuts on schools in your area, the likely impact that the new National Funding Formula will have on  your schools and the opportunity to ask your MP to call on the Chancellor to use the budget to provide additional funding.

In order to do this, you need to write to, or email, your MP and seek a meeting as part of the lobby.  Your MP is more likely to agree if you are able to write collectively on behalf of a group of constituents, i.e. you indicate to your MP that there are, say, 5 constituents who would like to come to Westminster to meet them on that day.

Attached is a list of suggestions and a template letter you can use.
