Rooftop Protest At Lewisham School

lewishamcouncil.jpg Brockley Kate draws our attention to a protest at Lewisham Bridge Primary School: parents have taken to the balconies to demonstrate against the council's plans to build a new Academy on the site. The school closed at Easter and pupils are being bussed to Deptford while construction takes place. At least, that was the plan - someone's sneakily got the building Grade II listed status, which has driven Lewisham's Mayor hopping mad. The school does look to have some lovely old tiling, but Lewisham desperately needs more schools to cope with large swathes of new development. Makes us glad we're not in local politics.
