School Budgets Letter

Dear Parents/Carers

You may have seen recent coverage in the media linked to school finances. School/Academy budgets are used to fund all of our operating costs: resources and equipment for pupils, staffing costs, ICT and buildings maintenance costs.

Sunderland Secondary Headteachers are therefore publishing a joint letter to parents, in the hope that you will support us in our concerns over rising costs, levels of funding and the potential consequences for teaching and learning. All schools in Sunderland are affected by this situation. School Leaders will always act responsibly on behalf of your children and their education and you can remain assured that we will continue to take the utmost care with regards to budgets. We need your support in order to do this to the best of our abilities.

Yours faithfully

Mr D Juric

Headteacher
