For the system to change, the local authorities which don’t already fund all deferral requests need to change their policy to agree to automatically fund all future deferral requests and that’s where you can help.
HOW THIS WILL HAPPEN?
For a council to automatically fund all future deferral requests, this needs to be discussed and approved by each council’s education committee.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
We need you to ask your local councillors to propose automatic funding of all deferrals be discussed at the next council education meeting.
Use our Template Letter to contact your local councillors to ask them to do this.
If you type your postcode in to Write to Them, a list of your local councillors, MSPs and MPs will appear and by copying and pasting the ‘Template Email’ text into the ‘contact form’ you can email all of your local councillors at once!
Please email every councillor in your ward.
