On a recent visit to Sunnyhill School in Streatham local Liberal Democrat candidate Helen Thompson discussed school funding as well as her support for low traffic neighbourhoods.
Helen commented that our schools in Lambeth have lost over £43 million worth of funding since 2015 which threatens their ability to deliver vital services.
Helen has also been welcoming the Liberal Democrat manifesto commitments on Education which include
- Immediate cash injections to return funding to 2015 levels
- 20,000 New Teachers in our school system
- Raising Teacher's pay by at least 3% per year
- Clearing the backlog of repairs in our schools
