A campaign for better funding for schools is running a ‘floss for funding’ campaign today (October 19).
Save Our Schools Brighton and Hove is a parent-led campaign launched in March last year to oppose austerity measures which it said would cut millions from Brighton and Hove’s school budget.
It has since campaigned for more school funding, with trips to Parliament and events such as the ‘arms around our schools’ day, where parents surrounded their schools in a symbolic act of protection.
Today schools around the country are encouraged to #Floss4Funding – a dance made famous in video game Fortnite – post a video online, and tweet it to education ministers Nick Gibb and Damian Hinds, Chancellor Philip Hammond and local MPs.
Brighton and Hove schools which have so far flossed for funding include Mile Oak Primary School, Bevendean Primary School and Fairlight Primary School.
