David Lammy (Tottenham, Labour)
The petition is from the governors, parents, teachers and community of Downhills primary school in Tottenham.
The petition states:
The Petition of residents of Tottenham,
Declares that the Petitioners believe that there has been inadequate consultation about the Secretary of State for Education’s plans to close Downhills Primary School and re-open it as an academy; that the Petitioners value the links with the community that the school has maintained over the last 100 years; that the Petitioners believe that the Secretary of State’s plans are undemocratic and undermine the recent progress that has been made towards improving standards at the school and that the Petitioners oppose any attempts to change the status of the school without the consent of the community.
And the Petitioners remain, etc.
