My Teachers TV video on the Spending Review

03 Nov 2010

 My latest video for the 'Need to Know' series on Teachers' TV looks at the Comprehensive Spending Review and the Pupil Premium.

After the dust settled - and once it was possible to see past the 'spin' - it became clear that the Pupil Premium was not all 'additional' money from outside the education budget, as had been promised.

It was also clear that the small real-terms spending increase for the schools' budget relied on the Pupil Premium to keep pace with inflation. Without the Pupil Premium, it would have been a real terms cut. And since not all schools will receive the same from the premium, there will be winners and losers.

In the video I hear the views of Russell Hobby of the NAHT and Christine Blower of the NUT about the likely impact on school budgets. I also visit a school in Hackney to see how it might benefit from the Pupil Premium money.

 Sadly this was the LAST EVER 'Need To Know' as the government has terminated the contract for Teachers TV. The channel has already stopped making some of its planned programmes (this series was due to run into December but has been halted after 3 editions of an 8 part run). 

There is no guarantee that even the archive will be available after April 2011. See elsewhere in the blog for details of how to join the teacher-led campaign to save Teachers TV.
