R4U ECC Cllr John Lodge: Residents securing school places for their children

I learned this week that the proposed additional capacity at Katherine Semar School in Saffron Walden will in fact be provided by the building of a complete new block in the school grounds.

It will provide for a complete additional form through the school with funding guaranteed from the Education Budget of Essex County Council; it is planned to open in September 2017. It is gratifying to see that pressure from Residents working together CAN succeed at ECC – let’s now keep pressure on UDC to see if they will eventually listen to Residents.
