I have been asked to write about the plan for a new freeschool in Evendons. You can see the details of it on www.evendonsfreeschool.co.uk. The idea is to set up a new primary school for 4-11 year olds. It would welcome children of all faiths. It would emphasise good English and the STEM subjectsm, science, technology, engineering and maths.
The supporters say “We will engage with the wider business community to ensure that we embed a culture of enterprise and entrepreneurship to complement academic achievement”. They would run a House system.
The proposers would welcome responses from people with children who might want to go to such a school, so they can assess potential demand. Wokingham is short of primary school places, so new ones will need to be provided somehow.
