#schoolsjustwannahavefunds

On Friday 26th May, Bluecoat C of E Primary School joined in with the National campaign for Fairer Funding for Schools #schoolsjustwannahavefunds. Events were being held all over the country as part of the ‘National School Assembly’ to raise awareness of the significant cuts that are being proposed to school budgets.

Before everyone left school to start their half term holidays, they gathered in the playground for a ‘bring and share’ picnic organised by the Friends of Torrington Bluecoat. Placards and banners were proudly displayed illustrating the important message. There was a fantastic show of passion from children, staff and governors all keen to make their voices heard and David Chalmers, Torridge and West Devon candidate for the Liberal Democrat Party joined the event and spoke about how the cuts are particularly bad in Devon and encouraged parents to have their say. Also in attendance were the Mayor of Torrington, Sue Mills, and several other local councillors.

We would like to thank everyone who supported the event. More information about the campaign can be found at http://www.fairfundingforallschools.org/
