We are heading into (or are already in) a School place crisis on Middlemore.

PLEASE POST YOUR COMMENTS AND JOIN THE DEBATE, I AM SEEING THE COUNCIL AGAIN THIS FRIDAY (Rick)

We have just received notification of the primary school allocation for our daughter who starts reception in September 2011.  Through the website, I wanted to canvas opinions/comments re the lack of school on Middlemore and concerns from parents re available school places.
We were unsuccessful with our top 3 preferences and have been given a place at Southbrook as our nearest school with places available.
In order of distance – Ashby Fields, Welton, Falconers Hill, St James, Staverton & Newnham – all full.  The only school in Daventry that has spaces left is Southbrook.
We now have to look at travelling over 15 miles a day as our only alternatives to Southbrook are Braunston, Badby or Kilsby.
The planned school on Middlemore was a deciding factor when we re-located from Devon 4 years ago.  And with the continued building on the estate, the situation regarding school places is only going to escalate.
Would be interested to hear how other Middlemore residents got on with their process.

Antony
