Deptford says no to Tidemill becoming an academy

Important News on New Application (March 2011)

» by

The school produced a letter to parents yesterday about possible academy status and they  hope that this discussion can progress in a respectful and reasonable way.

They have produced a  Briefing Paper on Equalities

We are at a loss to understand what status this paper has?

We are at a loss to understand where they got the evidence for many of their claims, (the document is statistically light).

We need to know if this documment is contributing to the new application for academy status and if so how?

If they were many flaws in their last application which they withdrew, how can they use information that was misleading and/or incorrect to inform their new application?

Copies of these documents can be found on the school website here
