The article also confirms what we'd already heard, that Oasis and WSSI have indeed got their preapproval from the DFE. This means they have a period of around three months to conduct a public consultation. The timing of our public meeting probably couldn't be better as a way of beginning a wide debate in the borough.
Don't miss this meeting, which will feature speakers from Defend Waltham Forest State Schools, a governor at Thomas Gamuel school, currently being forced to convert to academy status, and local parents and teachers.
