From John Barnes - East Sussex County Councillor
We need as many people as possible to answer this, making it quite clear that as constructed the formula systematically disadvantages rural schools. Any who finds difficulty in filling the consultation in should write to the Secretary of State, Justine Greening, and make the point, copying our MP, Huw Merriman. It would be good if an online petition could be organised. If you want to be constructive - suggest that the sparsity factor needs to be paralleled by a rurality factor. Otherwise, small rural primary schools faced with this and the apprenticeship levy will face closure and small secondaries will have to cut staff. This needs to go to parents across all parishes.
