The introduction of a National Funding Formula is likely to move funding from London and other metropolitan areas. Part of the success of London schools can be attributed to the ability to target resources where they are most needed. To remove these resources now puts everything which has been achieved at risk. This paper offers some reflection on why we need to fund all schools at the higher level.

I remember the moment when Sarah’s file landed on my desk. It was a tragic history of neglect, failed placements and exclusions. Sarah, despite being in Year 9, was barely able to read. Numerous cancelled appointments at CAMHS had led to her case being closed, re-opened and then closed again.

“History says, Don't hope
On this side of the grave,
But then, once in a lifetime
The longed-for tidal wave
Of justice can rise up
And hope and history rhyme”
