News that the Council will seek to provide more school places in Alexandra ward from 2011 has been welcomed by local Liberal Democrats. The recommendation to be made at this week's Council Cabinet meeting proposes to carry out a formal consultation to expand Rhodes Avenue Primary School to three-form entry. This will be good news for local families who have been beset with problems since 2007 when Liberal Democrats launched their campaign to combat the school place black hole.
Cllr Gail Engert, Liberal Democrat Children, Schools and Families spokesperson comments:
"I am very glad that the Council has decided to act on this longstanding issue and taken note of our campaign to help families in Alexandra ward who have really struggled to get their children local school places in the last two years.
"I hope as many parents as possible will respond to the consultation."
