Re: Extra places in the pipeline at popular schools with £15m investment in local education

Why on earth is nappyvalley promoting this un fact-checked press release from Wandsworth Council right at the start of the purdah period of a general election?

Is this simple naivety or political bias.

I would welcome a response please

Re: General Election - what do we think for Battersea?

Just some pesky facts here for anyone who sees this seat as a ‘long-standing conservative’ seat Martin Linton held this seat for Labour from 1997-2010. Martin Linton incidentally was named as an expenses angel by the telegraph I.e. one of a handful of sitting MPs who did not overclaim in expenses (a...

Re: Wanted: Frog 48 or Islabike Cnoc 16

Hi we have a cnoc16 which is getting a bit small for our little man.
It’s in very good condition as not used often, apart from one brake cable that might need replaced.
It’s a red one with mudguards ( a godsend), please pm me if interested, we are off the Northside

Re: Unauthorised Absence from School

Appreciate your question was about local authority policy and its sounds like your decision is already made. I have several friends who are teachers and even they have mixed views on this. I would very respectfully suggest you could perhaps informally ask your child’s teacher their opinion on this. ...

Re: Swimming lessons for a 1 year old

Both teaching pools at Latchmere and Clapham Manor Leisure Centre are warmer than the main pool
The group lessons there can be tricky to get a spot in but are very good value.

Re: Bike recommendation for 5y

We have an Islabike but Frog bikes have very similar spec and IIRC the cycle shop on Northcote actually stocks some

Re: Winterville in coming: Clapham Commons first ice rink

This is a long event, which is surprising, Tried to obtain local resident discounted tickets for daytime ice rink. You have to go through most of the ticket buying steps and then enter your postcode. Site did not recognise our SW11 postcode so I emailed their contact email, this was about 5 days ago...

Meteor St site of Belleville

We've been fortunate to be offered a school place at Belleville. We are much closer to the Meteor st site and so that would be our preference. We never thought Belleille was even an option so don't actually know much about the school and how things work at the second site. It's half-term now so we'v...

Re: Northcote road library to close?

You should all be very grateful that Wandsworth are actually proposing to build a new library to replace the one they are keen to close. Unlike their proposals for the York Gardens library a few years ago, where they simply wanted to close the library. Just so we are clear they wanted to close a lib...

Re: Park being replaced with a block of flats?

Ok so the idea that any child would like to use this 'park' in the state of repair that Wandsworth Council have chosen to allow it to to fall into is of course laughable. The question is Wandsworth Council why did YOU allow this to happen? Wandsworth Council similarly allowed a site on Forthbridge R...

Re: Wix to become part of Belleville

If you get rated 4 for Safeguarding, then your school gets rated a 4. If for one moment you actually stop and think about all the categories of vulnerable children than can attend a state school, even temporarily, then you may consider Safeguarding is the first job of a school. Incidentally there wa...
