Jasmine James started this petition to Sarah Merry (Cabinet Member for Education) and

Children all over St Mellons, Llanrumney, Rumney and Trowbridge have been denied a place at the local High School Eastern High for Sept 2020 and are now being left in limbo until atleast May left to hope they get a place off the waiting list (75 children) or appeal causing so much distess to parents and most importantly the children. Many of if not all if these children are within catchment and from the historical Feeder Primary Schools but are being asked to travel accross Cardiff to other schools. Several new  housing estates have been built or are being built and yet the intake number has not increased so why is this is not being taken into account when planning permission is granted etc. Several schools were closed for this "super" school which can't accomodate the area disadvantaging all these children. Some URGENT action needs to be taken not only for this year but for future Intakes. There are meetings being held to persuade the Faith schools to join the admissions process but this should have been looked at a few years ago and this issue anticipated. We cannot just accept this situation our Children deserve a place at a local school within catchment.
