Press Release 27th July 2007

On Tuesday, our open evening on the consequences of Church takeover of Wyebridge Sports College was well attended, with extra chairs needing to be put out.

There will be a further meeting, designed to inform people who wish to know more, on 6th August at the Game Cock on Holme Lacy Road, at 7:45 for 8pm.

The poll of whether people in South Wye want the college to be taken over will now close at Midnight Sunday 12th August to allow people to attend this meeting before making up their minds. The poll question is:

The Department for Education and Skills is working to give the school to the Church of England to open as a Church Academy. Accountability would then be to the Church of England rather than to the local authority or to parents.

Do you…
(A) Agree with this, and want it run on ‘Christian Values’ and for ‘the extension of the Kingdom of God’.
(B) Don’t care.
(C) Want the school to remain accountable, and be run for the benefit of pupils, whatever
their beliefs, without religious interference.

It is your local secondary school, please tell us what you want.
