Meeting – School Cuts in the Fylde area by Ken

Thursday 25th May 2017 in the Wesham Community Centre, Church Road, Wesham PR4 3DR

Note – since the Wesham meeting, we have issued a press release. For a press report in the Gazette click here. For the press release itself click here.

Mrs. Joanne Gould, teacher at Carr Hill and Vice President of Fylde NUT said,  “As a local resident, parent and teacher I am deeply concerned about the level and impact of the cuts to education both nationally and across the Fylde. These cuts will impact the resources and staffing available in our schools, and will impact all of our school age children. To hear more about how these cuts could potentially impact on our schools, please attend the meeting.

Parents should be assured that we, as a profession, will continue to do our very best for your children, whatever. However, please help us to give your children the education that they deserve.”
