Dr Mary Bousted, Joint General Secretary of the National Education Union, said:

“The NEU’s Super Saturdays are an opportunity for parents, teachers, school staff and all who are interested or concerned about education,  to come together find out more about the challenges facing schools and colleges. We have fought a long campaign against real-terms school cuts – the Government has moved ground, but it is nowhere near far enough. Staff are being cuts, class sizes are increasing, and school buildings remain in long-term disrepair.

“Be in no doubt that the outcome of this election affects every child in this country. Voters will be looking to the education pledges of each party in order to make an informed choice at the ballot box. That is what Super Saturday is for – to give people the facts, not the spin.

“This election is about more than Brexit. If you value education, you must vote for education.”

Forthcoming Super Saturdays will visit:


  • 23 November: Dudley North, Ashfield, Northampton North, Hastings and Rye
  • 30 November: Camborne and Redruth, Crewe and Nantwich, Bolton West, Newcastle under Lyme,
  • 7 December: Keighley, Pudsey, Hull West, Barrow and Furness, Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland
