Parents loose respect for the school & galvanise the campaign


Tidemill invited parents to raise their views either by letter or in person. In a statement released by the school this week, headteacher Mark Elms said  the decision was made by the board “after a full and lengthy discussion of the detailed documents placed on the school website and other relevant papers”.

One parent felt that she can no longer agree with Ofsted that Tidemill was an outstanding school. listen here

She said: ‘They should be clear and explain to us what is going on. I have lost a lot of respect for the school because of the way they are dealing with the parents.”

Opponents say that Academies would give private companies too much of an interest in education and would pose a threat to working conditions.A protester at last week’s event said that following the Governor’s vote they would be taking thier ideas on a national Anti- academies  meeting to ‘galvanise’ the campaign throughout the UK. read & hear full article in eastlondonlines
