As many of you know, Charles Dickens Primary School is a popular school, and have in recent years been unable to give places to all the children whose parents would like them to come to school here.
More generally there is a shortage of reception places in Southwark in 2012, and Southwark has asked to take an extra 15 pupils for the academic year 2012-13, increasing our reception intake from 45 to 60 pupils. The governing body – after a lot of discussion with Mrs de Quincey and the senior staff of the school – have agreed to this expansion, which will enable us to offer an excellent primary education to more local children.
We think it is a very exciting opportunity, but you will probably have some questions. So, what does all this mean?
