‘Teachers are turning to food banks to feed their families, shadow education secretary Angela Rayner has warned. Her remarks were made at a rally held in Westminster today, where campaigners had gathered as part of a mass lobby of MPs over school funding. Ms Rayner said: "It's an absolute tragedy that we have headteachers now having to run marathons where they used to run them for charity to give funds to their school." "It's really devastating when we have letters going home to parents asking them to provide what the state should provide within our education system. "It's disappointing that so many teachers have had to leave the profession because of the strain that they have been put under. It's disappointing you've had to write those letters to parents."’ https://www.tes.com/news/school-new...-rayner-teachers-resorting-food-banks-survive Do you know a teacher who is struggling financially? Are the senior school staff aware of the hardship that some staff are facing and is there a plan in place to help them or find the help they need?
