Re: Anyone else get harangued outside Northcote Library today?!

And yet Joan you still ignore my questions?!? But putting that to one side and commenting on your last post, it strikes me that by your logic and living in Putney should you not be supporting you own local school over there? I thought your anti-NSC propaganda was that one should always support the l...

Re: Anyone else get harangued outside Northcote Library today?!

I think one of the main questions we would like answering Joan is what would happen if the Year 6 children from all the primary schools that are actually closer to Chestnut Grove attended as well, how many places would that then leave for the kids from Northcote? As someone else posted above, I'm th...

Re: Anyone else get harangued outside Northcote Library today?!

I've no idea where janee gets her 1,000+ figure from, thats why I keep asking. But if it is to do with students from outside the borough, then one cant simply net them off the pupil places as if they didnt exist - thats a bit like saying 'I'd be really rich if my lottery numbers came up'. Its meanin...

Janeee - when you have finished your forensic analysis of the ARK document, could you pls answer the question about the 1,000+ surplus pupil places that you say exist in Wandsworth secondary schools? Thank you.

Re: Anyone else get harangued outside Northcote Library today?!

Janee - thanks but those links dont get me to any info on surplus pupil places? Can you not simply type the relevant school names with surplus place numbers as part of your post? I am interested to see the detail behind your earlier statement that there are "over 1,000 surplus places in secondary sc...

Re: Anyone else get harangued outside Northcote Library today?!

Laura - it seems to me that a lot of your issues are about ideology, either anti-academy and/or anti-freeschool. If the former, talk to Tony Blair or if the latter then contact Michael Gove. I'm not sure the council has too much to do with either to be honest. Personally I think some diversity in th...

Re: Anyone else get harangued outside Northcote Library today?!

Laura - The clear spike in population means that a solution must be found, and so to open a school in a part of the borough where none exists makes sense - not just to me but a lot of other people as well. We used to have several schools in Northcote but they have long since shut down. Just because ...

Re: Anyone else get harangued outside Northcote Library today?!

Laura - I too got set upon by your little gang on Saturday, is that how you like to go about your business, blocking people from trying to get into the library on their day off? I happen to favour the school, as do some other 2,500 local parents I believe. Thats a lot of supporters isn't it? Your ow...

Re: Anyone else get harangued outside Northcote Library today?!

JaneE - can you tell me where we can find out about the number of surplus places in Wandsworth - you say in excess of 1,000? The figure I have heard is about 350, half of which relate to the Catholic schools, so only about 175 spare in non-VA schools. And yet you think there are over 1,000 spare pla...
