I am personally opposed to all non-democratic incursions into Eduction.

“As the local Church of England Parish Priest:
– I would prefer that Tidemill School remained under the democratic control of the LEA and the current arrangement for School Governors.
– I am concerned that possible new selection procedures will prevent some local children from gaining admission to the School.
– I am also concerned that the establishment of an Academy in Deptford may have a negative impact upon other local schools, for example the nearby Grinling
Pax et bonum,

    Dear Paul

    Oh! How wonderful to hear a priest in the Church of England talking political sense. I am so grateful, so encouraged and so excited by what you had to say in tonight’s 4Thought. Thank you.
