Woolston to close

Recommended Posts

Little Fella

I think you have hit the nail on the head with ALL your comments. Once the idiots have made THEIR decision then that's that in their eyes.

 

They are totally blinkered to any form of reality or seeing the bigger picture, totally deaf towards any form of reasoning, debate, questioning or input and if at any stage they feel that what they are doing may be wrong they will never admit to it as none of them have any backbone to stand up and be heard and always bow towards the people pulling the party strings!

 

Stale Mate eh ?!!!!

 

Oh to be so stupid and yet to have such power :roll:

That's the point: they DON'T have "power"; if they did, they'd be able to keep ALL the schools open, on the basis they would have adequate Government funding and freedom to exercise their own policies. :roll: The "big picture" is National not Local. :roll:

Obs The school building extension had to be made because their (The Warrington brain cell) who ever was operating that day, made a decision on which school was to stay. It was an old Victorian building, not fit for purpose, the staff was poor, it was in special needs, and a minor point too small for the children it already had.

Not many children moved but it still needed a huge extension a mass of investment to bring it up to standard.

Now you can say that needed spending anyway just to keep the school. But the fact remains that they shut the other school which was very good and in doing so forced families to move to other areas where their children could be educated to an expectable standard.

So you are the one missing the point, calling people because they want better standards for their children, supporting the low life and despicable critters that crawl around the town hall blaming everyone else but themselves.

Dismayed ~ I am glad that you can also see the light. I never saw and order from National government saying shut school X, we know that the scum in the town hall could not organise a party in Greenalls and their own party in Westminster were not happy with them but that is something different.

I am afraid that the school will go to the wall because the local council say so, and you cannot do anything about it. I know some friends who have a daughter just attending there they are having a bad time at the moment the house is up for sale so they can move to Stockton Heath just so the daughter can go to Broomfields, both parents still work at Risley and the other daughter still goes to school there so it is a real mess and will mean a lot more travelling by car. With teaching staff at the school leaving standards are going to go down and in turn exam results by 2012 are going to be really bad.

It is really wrong that a few psychopaths can do this, where is going to be next.

The staff are not poor and the school is no longer in special measures. Woolston came out of that earlier than planned when the current head took over.

I seem to recall that a few of the "super heads" were given just that challenge. They went into some of the crappiest schools and managed to make a few changes, but the sad truth is that many of the kids attending were just not worth wasting your breath on. They should have been banged into the Armed Forces where they could have been given a proper education at the hands of a vary shouty, violent sargeant-major, and then returned to society after a tour or two in Afghanistan or Iraq :o

Sorry Mummy was not talking about Woolston school, but it is this is a same story from a few years ago and the Warrington council had the say on which school was to close. For some reason best known to them they made a big mistake. The really really sad thing is that they are not bothered in the slightest. They upset people?s lives, cost them un-necessary expense, cost the rate payer un-necessary expense. Rats of the highest order and not fit to breathe air. All of them that sat around that table at the town hall and voted that night should go and fall on their sword.

Fair enough. It was special measures that knocked the school in the first place, I dont think the council expected them to pull out but they did and did so early.

The problem these days is everything has to be run like a business - whether it be a sports club, charity or school - it is the only way it can survive.

If the figures don't add up (or the pupil numbers as funding comes from bums on seats) decisions like the one made over Woolston are reached by those in power.

Hi to all, just to keep you in the picture, their will be a public meeting next Wednesday at 7pm at the Church of the Ascension. This is to decide what steps to take next. People should be aware that this decision will effect the whole community, not just the school. All are welcome to attend, however, if you are unable please register your interest to

save-woolston-chs@hotmail.co.uk

 

and I will endeavour to keep you up to date with what is happening...

Thanks

Talking to someone the other day; who raised a new dimension to this issue:- in terms of the re-sale value of land; which school is most attractive to developers? :confused: Also, if a finite education budget is an issue: how much is the LEA now spending on the provision of interpreters to cope with the rise in non-English speaking pupils? :confused:
