Heidi Allen, MP for South Cambridgeshire and Daniel Zeichner, MP for Cambridge have joined forces to ask the Secretary of State, the Rt Hon Gavin Williamson, MP to provide an interim funding solution for the maintained nursery schools in their constituencies. Heidi has been working closely with Homerton Nursery School to raise awareness of the plight of maintained nursery schools. The schools have only been given funding until the end of this school year and can’t accurately forecast budgets for next year and beyond. Heidi and Daniel (who represents The Fields, The Colleges and Brunswick Nursery Schools) asked Gavin Williamson to consider an interim funding solution to keep these schools open. The full text of the letter can be seen below.
