Steve McCabe MP (Birmingham Selly Oak) has hit out against the Government’s decision to re-open the consultation into the closure of Baverstock Academy, despite repeated assurances that the Department for Education were looking for a sponsor to save the school.

 

Information emerged this morning that the Government is now planning to re-open a 4 week consultation period into closing the school.

 

 

Steve McCabe MP has been demanding that the Department for Education and the Regional Schools Commissioner honour their promise and find a new sponsor to save the school.

 

Steve McCabe MP said:

Steve has made it clear that people should know their rights and not be intimidated by bailiffs who aren’t following their code of conduct.

Steve McCabe MP said:

Steve McCabe MP was perplexed to hear from the Planning Department they will not take enforcement in some cases on unauthorised buildings as they probably would have approved the application anyway.

Steve runs an annual Christmas card competition with local schools and once again was faced with the difficult task of picking a winner out of hundreds of creative and imaginative designs from pupils across Selly Oak constituency.

Steve has been working with the Save Baverstock Group, made up of parents and local residents, to fight for the school’s future. Together they have collected over 1,500 signatures all calling for the Government to save the school.
