An Oxfordshire headteacher has warned that her school and others like it face a funding crisis that will mean bigger class sizes and extra work for teachers.
Catharine Darnton, of Gillotts School, in Henley-on-Thames, says she's already made huge cutbacks.
Teachers today raised their concerns at the Association of School and College Leaders conference, saying they may have to move to a four day week, or ask parents to donate cash.
Sam Holder takes a look at what it means for schools and their pupils.
Sam spoke to the headteacher at Gillotts School, Catharine Darnton, science teacher Simon West and the headteacher of Forest School Mary Sandell who was speaking last month.

Auctioneers Bonhams have an interesting item up for sale later this month. It's a ‘ready to race’ sports car - a 1968 Ford Escort Twin Cam Competition Saloon, and it could fetch up to £250,000. Top speed is 150 mph!
The car was one of the six original Escorts that Ford loaned to the Alan Mann Racing Team to compete in the British and European Touring Car Championships.
Driven by Jackie Oliver, founder of the Arrows racing team, the car currently meets all FIA regulations and weighs just 878kg without driver. With many destroyed in active service and the majority of others in museums or private collections, works Ford competition rarely come to the market and almost never in such exceptional condition.
It's been described as a ticking time bomb, which could result in the closure of hundreds of businesses across the region, as increased business rates take effect from April. For many, the scale of the increases may come as a shock, as the previous reset in 2015 was postponed ahead of the General Election.

Up to 600 workers at the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) in Berkshire are on strike today in a continuing dispute over changes to their pensions.
Members of the Unite union from the sites at Aldermaston and Burghfield will join colleagues from across the country protesting at the Ministry of Defence in Whitehall. They say they stand to lose thousands of pounds in retirement income.
The firm's defined benefit pension scheme was closed on 31 January 2017.
"Our committed members feel betrayed and badly let down by what has happened to their pensions and they don't deserve to lose thousands of pounds when they retire.
"There is a solution that could resolve this dispute and that is to allow the AWE workforce to join the principal civil service pension scheme.
"Our members want to have a constructive dialogue with Michael Fallon, but they have met with a brick wall which is insulting to such a dedicated workforce delivering the government's flagship Trident nuclear programme.
"So on Tuesday, our members will be knocking on the proverbial front door at the MoD as they seek to secure a decent retirement income that they were promised by a Tory government a quarter of a century ago."
