Parents are propping up school budgets, survey finds
Date:1 NOV 2018

A survey by charity Parentkind UK of 1,500 UK parents has revealed that parents are increasingly being asked to make regular donations of cash, books, glue and toilet rolls to their child’s school to offset school funding deficits.

Forty-three per cent of parents have been asked to make a regular financial contribution to their child’s school, up from 37% two years ago. More than a third (36%) say they make regular donations (up from 29% in 2016), and 11% donate more than £30 a month.

Many parents also report that numbers of teaching assistants have been cut and the length of the school week reduced, and many others say they have to pay for school clubs and events that used to be free.
