Parents, carers and guardians are being urged to fight plans which could result in swinging cuts to school budgets in the area.
Hammersmith and Fulham Council says the way government funds schools across the country is likely to have a negative impact on its schools, with some projections forecasting a 10% cut.
It is a view shared by Paul Stubbings, the principal of Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School in neighbouring borough Kensington and Chelsea, who has warned of a “profound and imminent financial threat” over the new National Funding Formula.
It is designed to spread wealth over the country, but H&F say such cuts could threaten jobs, hit the range of subjects taught, and even damage the long-term viability of some schools.
So it is launching a borough-wide drive to get more people join up and oppose the plans.
“We know that the tremendous work undertaken by teachers, governors, parents and carers each and every day makes our schools thrive.
"Any cuts to funding will make that work more difficult”, said Cllr Sue Macmillan, children and education chief at the council.
“I have been talking to schools about this issue for some months now, but it is crucial that people are aware of the government’s plans and what we can do together to oppose them.
"That’s why we are launching a borough-wide drive to involve all those who care about our local schools to join with us in fighting these plans.”
'Arguments more powerful with public support'
The government is expected to make a formal announcement in the coming weeks, and also launch a consultation on their plans.
Parents, carers and guardians in the borough can be the first to know when this happens, and also have their say on the plans, by visiting the council's Fair Funding web page .
Cllr Macmillan added: “Just as Hammersmith and Fulham Council invested in education for many years, it is right that the government should invest in education outside London - but not at the expense of our schools.
“It’s really important at that point that as many people as possible get involved in the consultation. The council is determined to do all it can to safeguard funding for all schools in our borough.
“The arguments we make when the government announces its plans will be made all the more powerful with your support.”
MPs in Hounslow have also voiced their concern at the proposals .
