Birmingham schools will lose £97 million by 2019. That’s 2,604 teachers and £579 per pupil. Find out here how much your school will lose, and support the campaign.

The updated Schoolcuts website – – supported by NUT, ATL, GMB, NAHT, UNISON and Unite – shows how the Government’s own National Funding Formula proposals will, when combined with its funding freeze, affect each school. You can find out how your school will be affected – just put in the name or postcode.



-£97,003,923 Budget change by 2019

Total estimated reduction across all schools in Birmingham in real terms by 2020, under current Government policies. These include plans to reallocate school budgets according to a new national funding formula, and not increasing funding per pupil in line with inflation. Find out more about our calculations.

-£579 per pupil 

Average amount that would be lost for every pupil in Birmingham as a result of the reduced budget. There are 167,537 pupils in Birmingham according to the school census.

-2604 teachers

The equivalent number of teachers that would be lost, based on the average teacher’s salary of £37,250. Hundreds of teaching assistants’ jobs may also be at risk.

Please join the campaign to help keep the investment we need in our schools and to ensure our young people continue to get the opportunities they need and deserve.

Email your MP and local councillors to let them know what’s happening in schools in their area and ask them to take action.
