NO MORE ACADEMIES IN LEWISHAM
- Date: Wednesday 8th June
- Time: 6:30pm
- Venue: Catford Town Hall
The Lewisham Education Commission Report, due on June 1st is likely to be proposing, council supported Multi-Academy Trusts and Free Schools.
The shambolic handling of Sedgehill does not bode well for either students, teachers or staff at other Lewisham schools. Prendergast schools, defeated in their attempts to academise this time last year are clearly lining up to take advantage of new legislation.
But, there is no appetite for academies in the borough, teachers, students and other staff are determinedly against. Alongside this are the massive PFI costs any incoming academy would have to bear.
At a time when the Tories are on the back foot and when the national Labour Party are firmly opposed to academies this is not the time to roll over without a fight.
