The formal consultation phase 1 has been launched for the proposed Judith Kerr Primary School.
I would encourage East Dulwich residents to comment. They’re effectively asking whether we want the Judith Kerr Primary School in SE22.
With a shortage of primary school places of 75-80 places by 2016 in Dulwich and another 135 in the adjacent Southwakr area we have a coming crisis. Hosting the Judith Kerr school in Dulwich would really help address that coming shortage – along with one or possibly two Harris Federation Primary Schools.
The proposed Judith Kerr admissions code isnt ideal. They’ve said after children with spciecla needs, looked after children and sibling that of the remainder places 50% would be allocated on distance from the school and the other 50% on a lottery basis. 100% of the remiqnder based on distance would make it much more integral to the community.
But please do respond to the online consultation
