Primary Free School to be delayed for a year

Just before the winter break, we received news which many of you may have seen now, that United Learning Trust’s proposed primary academy will now be delayed for a year following difficulties in locating a site, in spite of being in this year’s admissions booklet. The story was covered in the Waltham Forest Guardian in late December.

We welcome this delay, especially given the other recent local news that Waltham Forest’s community primary schools are performing well against government tests. There's no need for these Free Schools - they are an expensive, unnecessary gamble with our childrens' future and as recent scandals in Derby and Sussex have shown, it's children who pay when they go wrong.
