Downhills Primary School campaigners to 'hug' school
CAMPAIGNERS battling to stop a Tottenham school being forced into an academy will symbolically ‘hug’ the building this afternoon.
The Save Downhills Primary School group of parents, teachers and governors will form a human chain around the Philip Lane building in a bid to show they will not let the changes happen without a fight.
Governors at the school – and three others – have been given a deadline of January 20 to commit to becoming an academy, or face an interim board of governors being imposed by the Department for Education.
But Downhills has launched a legal bid to stop the change and has given Education Secretary Michael Gove until Wednesday to respond to their letter warning him they will go to court.
