Stephen Bell: Withdraw The Proposal to relocate Tithe Barn School

This petition made change with 929 supporters!

Concerned Parents of Tithe Barn School and friends in the community are deeply aggrieved and against the Proposal to relocate and expand the existing Tithe Barn School. 

SMBC have asked the school to move out of its catchment and existing community, to a location within another school's catchment. SMBC wants to relocate Tithe Barn School and expand to become one of the largest primary school’s in SMBC with 3 form entry.

SMBC have confirmed that the existing Tithe Barn School land will then be sold to the highest bidder.

Concerned parents and the Community have a voice and that voice says No. If we act now we can stop this.

The Council has many other options open to it which do not involve closing and relocating an outstanding school. Furthermore this does not support the needs of all the other schools in the Heatons. It does not support the communities around Tithe Barn School and around the already congested area of Buckingham Road and the route to Heaton Chapel Station.

Other solutions would provide more school places in the Heatons and support the community and existing schools. 

We ask that all concerned should let the councillors know, by signing this petition, we do not accept that this is the right option for Stockport, for the Heatons, or our community. Stockport and The Heatons need  primary schools close to childrens' homes within the heart of their community.

Do not relocate and expand this wonderful community school. It has Outstanding OFSTED report, excellent academic achievement and is a wonderful environment in which all children grow to become Cheerful Confident Achievers.   

Please take just a few seconds to sign our petition before it's too late.
