'My supply teacher budget is zero,' says Cardiff head

"I've got a supply [teacher] budget of zero... On teaching materials, we've cut our budget by 50%," said head teacher Jane Jenkins.

She said her school, Moorland Primary in Cardiff, has enough to cover the basics like pencils and books.

But she added: "All the lovely extra things we're not in a position to afford."

Schools are not getting enough money to meet the demands on them or give pupils the education they deserve, a Welsh Assembly report has said.

The Welsh Government said it prioritised education spending despite austerity cuts to Wales' overall budget from the UK Treasury, including a £24m "package of professional learning" for teachers to help raise standards.
