Exmouth College parents being asked for donations to ease budget cuts

“Parents at one of Devon’s biggest secondary schools are being asked to pay a contribution of £15 for their first child, and £5 per sibling, to help the school cope with budget cuts.

The Principal of Exmouth Community College, Andrew Davis, said in a letter to parents the financial situation is “really tough”, with rising costs and frozen budgets,

He said the contributions will help him “reinstate some of the budget lines” he has had to cut.

He’s also put out an appeal to the wider community for support, saying they can ring the school and pay with a debit or credit card.

Previously the government said more money was going into schools than ever before, with a record £43.5bn by 2020.
