|Public Asked for Views on Sulivan School's Future|
Consultation will run until Tuesday August 12
Hammersmith and Fulham Council is asking local people for their comments on the future of Sulivan Primary School.
A Hammersmith & Fulham Council Cabinet meeting on Monday 23 June decided to publish proposals to revoke the previous decision to amalgamate Sulivan and New King's schools in Fulham.
The new proposals for the two schools are available online here www.lbhf.gov.uk/fulhamschools
Anyone wanting to register objections or comments has until Tuesday 12 August to do so.
Please send your comments to Alan Wharton, Children's Services, 2nd floor, Kensington Town Hall, Hornton Street, London, W8 7NX, email:firstname.lastname@example.org
Cllr Stephen Cowan, Leader of Hammersmith & Fulham Council, says: " The future of these primary schools is an important issue for parents and children in Fulham. We are determined to make sure local people have the opportunity to express their views before any decision is taken.
" I strongly encourage everyone interested in the future of these schools to take part in this consultation."
Earlier this month Cllr Cowan announced the new administration's intention to review the merger in light of its changes to the borough's housing policy.
The administration's new approach to housing policy, signalled in its manifesto, emphasises the need for new affordable homes to rent, which is likely to increase demand for primary school places. This could have a particular impact on the South Fulham Riverside development, where 1,000 extra homes are being built.
The previous administration took a decision to merge the two schools on 10 February 2014 in order to reduce the number of surplus places across the two schools by 15 per year group. The new administration's significant change in housing policy could mean those places are now needed.
