Claire Wright started this petition to Baroness Berridge

The much-loved Tipton St John Primary School is in the floodzone and must be relocated on safe dry land, to avoid its closure.

Now is the time to press education ministers for action as they are currently assessing schools across the country for the potential for rebuild funding.

The window is tight but if we act fast people power might persuade ministers to provide that funding.

Tipton St John Primary School should absolutely be a recipient of the scheme and I have written to  Education Minister, Baroness Berridge asking her to include Tipton St John Primary School in the new programme.

Back in 2015 the Environment Agency declared that there is a risk to life of the children attending the school and that it must be rebuilt outside the floodzone.

Unfortunately, a bid to the government's Priority School's Building Programme in 2015, was rejected by ministers.

It's now time for government ministers to put things right.

Please urgently sign and share this petition with your contacts to help save Tipton St John Primary School and rebuild it on safe dry land, within the village.

Thank you so much for your support.
