The Headteachers and Governors of the nursery, primary, secondary and special schools in Barnet are committed to providing a world class education for your children. We have, for some time now, developed powerful and effective partnerships which see us working together to secure high quality provision across all of our schools. We are concerned that current levels of funding are now seriously threatening this high quality provision.
On 23rd November 2018, Headteacher representatives met with Nick Gibb, Minister of State for School Standards, and Mike Freer, MP for Finchley and Golders Green, and presented a briefing paper, setting out a number of points. As a group, we are now sharing this with you and hope that you will be able to support our endeavours in raising awareness of our concerns at every possible opportunity by contacting government and local council officials. You can read the paper by clicking here.
In particular, we believe that contacting your local MP and raising your concern might have an impact. You can contact Theresa Villiers at firstname.lastname@example.org. Schools and governors alike are determined that quality, inclusive provision should be protected and would like to hear from you if you feel you can help us in that endeavour.
With Kind Regards,
L. Swaine, Headteacher
