Education

Southwark has a large number of schools catering for all age groups and abilities. Take a look at the local links page under your ward page to find out which schools are in your area. Read on for our national education policies.

National Education Policies:

1. Reverse all cuts to frontline school and college budgets, protecting per
pupil funding in real terms.

2. Increase our Early Years Pupil Premium to £1,000 per pupil per year.

3. End the 1% cap on teachers’ pay rises.

4. Ensure that all teaching staff have the training to identify mental health
issues and that schools provide immediate access for pupil support
and counselling.

5. Reinstate maintenance grants for the poorest students, ensuring that
living costs are not a barrier to disadvantaged young people studying at
university.
