A Sept 2010 Academy in Financial Difficulties

I spotted this in the local press about a primary school which is looking at 17 redundancy due to a shortfall in budget.

Unusually this is a primary school which is in one of the most densely populated wards in the country but has done amazing work in extending the opportunities of its pupils. Three years ago they had a budget surplus of £174,720 and interestingly the article says that they are already in talks with the DfE about their current budget shortfall.

@Ros,

This just sounds like surplus funding has been cut back.

"Mrs Davies said the staff affected were on a year-long contract to help provide certain schemes, for example help provide regular outdoor learning sessions where classes are taken at the beach – this will now be scaled back – and after school clubs for karate, kickboxing and dancing have been stopped."
