Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has written to principals in the Roe Valley and surrounding area in response to a letter sent to parents earlier this week regarding school budget concerns.

The East Derry MLA said:

“Along with my colleague and party spokesperson on education, Karen Mullan MLA, I have met and consistently engaged with the Permanent Secretary of the Education Department, the Education Authority, teaching unions and sectoral bodies over the past two years to highlight concerns around budgets and other issues being brought to our attention by school principals.

“There is no doubt that many schools are suffering as a result of the Tory austerity agenda, now supported by the DUP, which has seen our block grant slashed over the past nine years, resulting in huge cuts to departmental budgets.

“I have written to all of the principals who signed the letter offering to meet and discuss the issues and concerns highlighted.

“My party colleagues and I will continue to oppose Tory austerity and make the case for additional resources for our public services and in particular for education.”
