Consultation has started on establishing the Michaela "Community" School in Tooting. Details on this
Key dates: 19th January (public consultation); 31st January and 8th February for prospective parents.
The public "consultation" seems to be structured in a similar way to the Bolingbroke "consultation". Members of the public are invited in individually and will not have the ability to raise concerns in a public way.
I would be very interested to hear views on the curriculum offer as described on MCS's website. I certainly have considerable concern about the KS3 Maths curriculum, the streaming, and the narrowness of the curriculum in general which seems to be geared entirely to the EBacc.
I raised the issue of streaming on the local blogsite and was informed that the streaming would only be in year 7, but it does raise serious questions about how ready they would be for opening in September 2012, given that they have no building yet and seem unclear about how and what they will teach.
