GMB, the union for school staff, has responded to analysis showing school spending per pupil in England will remain lower in real terms than in 2009–10

Avril Chambers, GMB National Officer, said: 

"Despite a lot of big talk from successive Conservative Governments, this report clearly shows our schools have been and remain chronically underfunded. 

“The crisis is being played out across our schools and Ministers need to get a grip of what is happening at the DfE and start fully funding our education system. 

“We need to invest properly in our children's futures and stop widespread redundancies among the experienced schools support staff who provide targeted front line pupil support.”
