Numerous residents have written to me concerning the new proposals for the catchment area of Maiden Erlegh School.
I did lobby Councillors to maximise the use local residents can make of the school, preferring Wokingham Borough pupils over those from outside the Borough. I have now contacted Councillor Stanton, the Executive memebr responsible, to say that there are strong feelings that the draft proposal does not give a high enough priority to local residents close to the school to the north. There is general satisfaction in Lower Earley about the arrangements to the south of the school.
This is an important decision which is entirely the responsibility of our Councillors.
