Parents occupy school in Greenwich to protest closure

Parents have occupied the Charlotte Turner Primary School in Greenwich to oppose its closure.

Parents at Charlotte Turner School, Benbow Street, Greenwich, SE8 3DH, have occupied their school to oppose its planned closure in September by the council.
They released this statement this evening;

“Following a false consultation parents at Charlotte Turner have occupied their school. We have protested outside the town hall, put questions at a cabinet and council meeting but we were fobbed off. 297 parents replied to a consultation on the council’s plan. 296 were against and only 1 parent in agreement. Yet the council have decided to listen to the 1 not the 296 and plan to close the school in September. We demand the council reverse this decision.

Hands off Lewisham Bridge who are campaigning against the closure of their school in Lewisham and currently undertaking an occupation there are supporting this campaign.
