Next Meeting: Giving Every Child the Best Start in Life

25th November 2015, 5.30pm, Larkrise Primary School OX4 4AN

The past five and a half years have seen a significant increase in child poverty while many of the services our children rely on have been reduced or cut entirely. The latest to face the chop are Oxfordshire’s children’s centres. What can teachers do, as individuals, in their unions, and alongside parents and others, to give every child the best possible start in life?

Come and discuss these issues with Kevin Courtney, Deputy General Secretary of the NUT and a local speaker from the Save Oxfordshire Children’s Centres campaign.

We will also discuss motions for NUT Annual Conference at this meeting.

As a parent of two children at schools in Oxford, I am fully supportive of NUT campaigns.  Teachers work so hard to deliver high quality education to our children and I am very clear that good education is a right, not a privilege. – Tracy Walsh, parent.
The NUT in Oxfordshire has been at the forefront in drawing attention to the threats our children face if education reforms continue to favour the privileged few. Every child should have access to a qualified teacher, and a school which champions the interests of every child, irrespective of postcode, parentage or perceived academic potential. – Chris Davis, parent.
