ePetition details

SAT Campaign - School Allocation Trouble

We the undersigned petition the council to increase the intake of reception class children at the three local schools, Thurnham C of E, Madginford Park Infants and St John's CEP to make sure all local children attend local schools.

The aim of the ePetition is to create awareness of this situation and increase the infant class intake to eliminate the stress that many families in the Bearsted, Madginford, Weavering and Grove Green areas are currently experiencing.

On reaching 1000 signatures the matter will be referred to the most appropriate local level meeting (e.g. Local Board, Locality Board or Joint Transportation Board)

This ePetition ran from 26/04/2012 to 29/05/2012 and has now finished.

1171 people signed this ePetition.
