The French ambassador presenting the LabelFrancEducation certificate to the school My children’s school, Shaftesbury Park (where I’m also lucky enough to be chair of governors), has become the first school in the country to get LabelFrancEducation accreditation from the French ministry of education.
Having been a little cynical about the value of some meetings I found myself rather enjoying last night’s full council, despite it being a meeting in which I made no contribution other than voting.
The council’s executive committee unanimously approved the decision to revisit the Belleville admissions policy last night.
It’s an odd, but strangely liberating, experience to have broken rank and spoken out against the council.
The council, sadly, seems determined to plough ahead with its almost universally unpopular scheme to expand Belleville School into Shaftesbury while denying Shaftesbury children the right to attend.
There is no doubt the council’s current consultation on expansion at Belleville is stirring up heated debate.
In an email the other day I commented that the two big pillars of the Big Society were re-branding and permission.
I’m probably a creep, but I rather like the videos that have been created for the Wandsworth Conservative council campaign.
