Public meeting to discuss free primary school plan
A new free primary school set to open in less than nine months is yet to confirm where it will be based ahead of a public meeting next week.
The Park Community School will be run by Morden based Christian group Chapel St and is set to open its doors for the first time in September 2014 to 60 primary school children.
The site of the school is still being acquired by the Education Funding Agency in partnership with the Department for Health and is yet to be confirmed.
However the former BBC sports ground in Motspur Park is believed to be the preferred site.
A consultation on the plans is still running until December 20 with a second public meeting set to be held on Thursday, December 12, at 7.45pm at the Holy Cross Church Hall in Douglas Street, Motspur Park.
"Park Community School will have two forms of entry, providing up to 60 new places every year for families looking for first-rate care and an excellent education for their children.
"This meeting is an opportunity for parents and other members of the local community to ask questions and provide feedback about Park Community School."
Chapel St already run three free schools in the UK with another planned in Kingston.
They have also recently taken over the management of Benedict Primary in Mitcham after it was judged "inadequate" by Ofsted.
