Council Ignores Laburnum School Campaign – Now Have Your Say

Hackney Council has ignored all the responses from the consultation over the closure of Laburnum School and decided to push ahead. This flies in the face of local opinion and could lead to another valuable community asset being taken away from us.

All objections to this decision must be reported to the Schools Organisation Committee, which recently voted 3 to 2 against closing Kingsland secondary. Any non-unanimous decision goes to the Secretary of State, so Hackney IWCA (Hackney Independent as of summer 2004) are urging all supporters of Laburnum School to send their objections to the following address explaining why the school must stay open:

Stuart Sands
3rd Floor
The Learning Trust
Hackney TLC
1 Reading Lane
E8 1GQ
This must arrive no later than Monday 24th February.
