Government proposed budget cuts

03-07-2017

Whether they will ever happen is an unknown at the moment, with so many backbenchers seemingly rebelling against austerity, who knows. However if they do then this seems to be about the most straightforward set of numbers that I have found so far.

Possibly Suella would do better trying to do address current problems rather than trying gfor a new 'A' level college but really both problems need addressing with some force.

The budget cuts figures have been taken from a website that seems to be specifically about the budget cuts

  1. The estimated reduction in the school's annual budget by 2019 in real terms, 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 their calculations.
  2. Amount that would be lost for every pupil as a result of the reduced budget.
  3. Equivalent number of teachers that would be lost based on the average teacher salary or £37,250 if the figure is not published.

The total cuts being suggested for Fareham are:
Total cuts for all schools - £4,295,064 which equates to a cut per student of about £390, obviously this will depend on the number of pupils when the and if the cuts take place, and a loss of about 139 teachers.

This is just for the Fareham Borough Council schools

Could there be a new college in Fareham?

21-06-2017

Well Suella reckons that she can get Fareham and Gosport CCG to stump up for changes to our local 'community hospital' so maybe she can get the education authority to go for this as well. After all a lot of the news reports are sort of threatening an end to austerity so maybe Cllr. Woodward and Suella will succeed.

And just think if the Winnham Farm development goes through that could put up to another 1,500 houses just the other side of the A27, should be a nice safe spot for a college, but then again the students should be old enough to cope with such a situation, not sure if their lungs would be able to cope with the polution though.

There is, at present, room for an expansion in population but if we project this into the future, when and where will the places be made available for the increased numbers that will be created by the great development phase that we are about to undertake until the new schools are actually up and running as they will certainly not be built before the houses are occupied?


if 

the cuts listed above take place - goodness knows what the situation will be.

The greatest interim effect of Welborne will be felt by Orchard Lea, Uplands, Harrison and St Columba's. It will just add more traffic queues to the North Hill, Kiln Road and Highlands Road rat run.

If Newlands goes ahead then it would seem that Ranvilles would probably be the closest but Crofton schools would be the easiest to reach as they are likely to be against the prevailing traffic flow, but that depends on how many jobs can be created at Daedalus. Possibly gridlock will occur during term time but then we are already approaching that situation.

With catchment areas as large as these and only six secondary schools for an estimated total secondary school population of 11,000, where will the children of the additional 6,000 houses in Welborne, 3,500 in North Whiteley (not in fact part of Fareham Borough Council), 1,500 in Newlands and all of the other additional houses be educated.

The plan for the Welborne Secondary School is for it not to be even started before the first 5,000 houses have been completed and until it is completed how will the road structure cope with the additional school runs through an already highly congested part of the town and how will our existing schools manage to accomodate and educate the additional students?

To date there has been no statement offered that addresses this potential major problem.

Headteachers from Fareham meet MPs over school funding concerns

24-03-2017

Two paragraphs in the same article - it just shows how beautifully numbers can be spun.

"Under the DFE’s proposed new funding formula, schools across the Fareham borough will see a 21% increase in net funding, or equivalent to £952,000.

However, across the borough, around 10 of Fareham’s 21 schools will lose out on funding cuts between £7,000 and £96,000 per annum."


Daily Echo article Link to the Daily Echo article"

So three schools will see a nice increase in Government funding while ten will lose out, not sure about the eight. It doesn't look good for the children that will be housed in the additional 12,000 houses planned for Fareham. I wonder if they are starting to remove funding so that the new schools in Welborne can have some of the cake.
