Please help us get our school back #SaveFalcons

Please help us get our school back. Our proposed Sikh faith school, Falcons Primary, had its funding cut by the DfE (Department for Further Education) 48 hours prior to launching, and we have been told to make alternative arrangements for our children!

No explanation or release has come from ‘Discovery Trust’ a partner that has been working on this project. They have worked alongside ‘Akaal Education Trust’ for well over 12 months. Discovery have failed to engage with parents, have not been part of the journey, and at the 11th hour decided to pull on the project with no feasible explanation as to why.

The Akaal Education Trust, who are made up of locals and are experts in their respective fields, are working alongside parents and the Sikh community in Leicester to find a solution to this to get children into the school as quickly as possible.

We have had major backing from members of parliament; in particular Keith Vaz, who went with a delegation to meet with Lord Nash, Secretary of State for Schools on Thursday 4th Sep. He also helped organise a meeting between the trustees and Lord Nash next week and says he is hopeful of a positive outcome.

Right now, we are appealing to you to sign the petition below so we can present this to the DfE and ask them to reconsider their decision. This petition is for a call to the DfE to reinstate Akaal Education Trust and open the school ASAP as everything is in place to do so. With your help we can make this happen and provide our children the education they deserve.
