Keep our children in local schools.

Petition to Essex County Council

Purpose of petition: To keep our children in local schools. Having built many housing developments and not expanded the local schools or built new ones has ment that our local schools have become over crowded by people moving to the areas which has left no available spaces for our children to attend the schools. Children have been offered schools as far as 52 miles away from their homes. This not only has an effect on the mental health and well being of our children but will also have an effect on their education.

Lead Petitioner: Victoria Nottage 

If you support this petition please sign and help our children stay locally for their education.
