Date posted: 09-06-2012
CHAFFORD parents continue to campaign against the lack of school places in the borough.
A few weeks ago they protested outside the council offices at the lack of primary places for their pupils.
They managed to get a meeting with the portfolio holder in charge of education, cllr Oliver Gerrish as well as council officers.
Since then, they have started an e-petition (petitiononline.co.uk/petition/chafford-schools-for-chafford-kids/4468).
So far, they have gained over 300 signatures.
The parents will be at the community day at the Beacon church in Drake Road, Chafford Hundred on June 16th where you can sign their petition.
Parents have also continued to be in discussion with the local MP, Jackie Doyle Price regarding the feasibility of a free school similar to the one planned at the Gateway Academy in Tilbury.
