July 2017 – the  Mayfield banner travelled to London for the Carnival Against Cuts on Sunday 16th July!  Journalist Gary Younge was MC for the speeches.  He said his mum was a school teacher and, now he is back from the States, his children attend state schools.  The speeches from a TA, Headteacher and pupils were heartbreaking yet also inspiring.  It really seems like we can’t leave things to chance and will have to continue campaigning to save our schools!
