Inside the School Cuts Crisis

As schools reopen their doors this week, Panorama asks if we have reached a crisis point in education funding.

As schools reopen their doors this week, Panorama asks if we have reached a crisis point in education funding. The film follows staff and pupils at North Denes Primary in Great Yarmouth through a challenging summer term. To balance the books, the headteacher has to lose almost a fifth of her staff and cut services which help families in the wider community. Boris Johnson has pledged to boost school funding – but will it be enough, and will the extra money go to the schools that need it most?
