Keep Mortimer Primary School under Local Authority control.

This petition had 364 supporters

We are a group of parents whose children attend Mortimer Primary School in South Shields.

Mortimer Primary School is an outstanding school with strong community ties and links to other schools in the borough. The school has excellent leadership, fabulous teachers and lovely support staff. Our children are succeeding and it is a very happy school.

We fully support our headteacher and want him to remain in control of our school, not hand over autonomy to an Academy Trust. We are concerned by NUT reports that academies tend to be less happy places for teachers to work in and zap money/resources from other community schools remaining in the LA's family of schools.

We want to preserve the successful, community ethos at the heart of our school !
