Schools across Folkestone, Hythe and Romney Marsh are facing 'savage' funding cuts over the next few years - check out the app below to see how your local school will be affected.

 

 

Liberal Democrats say the Conservatives' new funding formula for schools will take money from many local schools according to figures published by www.schoolcuts.org.uk which used published Department for Education data to calculate cuts to England's primary and secondary schools over this Parliament, 2015-2020

The Lib Dems say that over the next few years, it will mean a loss to our local schools of:

Folkestone Academy: -£1,435,809
Folkestone School for Girls: -£701,328
Brockhill Park PA College: -£562,403
The Harvey Grammar: -£405,206
TThe Marsh Academy: -£320,948


The Liberal Democrat policy is to boost education spending by £7 billion and make sure every school gets a fair deal.

Folkestone and Hythe Campaigner Lynne Beaumont is angry at the cuts to our schools.

She says: "Our secondary age schools will be almost £3.5 million down - equivalent to losing 95 teachers in Folkestone and Hythe alone.

"Our Primary schools are also seeing savage cuts.

"We need to Stop the Squeeze on our school budgets. We need to stand up for our schools.

"The Liberal Democrats have a plan to invest in our schools, which is one of the most important investments any country can make in its future."
