I am excited by school's ambition
OVER the last few weeks, I have followed the debate over plans for the new Cathedral Primary School to take over part of the Central Library with keen interest. Whilst acknowledging the sincerity of those who are against any such moves, the idea that there is some grand conspiracy behind the proposal really is completely fanciful ("We suspect that this is a plot to cut demand" Bristol Post August 29).
Readers may be interested to know that my colleague Councillor Alastair Watson is set to question Simon Cook on the latest developments surrounding this saga, at the next meeting of full council, to be held next Tuesday. Personally, I am very supportive of the proposed sharing arrangement.
I recently met Neil Blundell, Principal of the Cathedral Choir School, to learn more about this innovative scheme, and came away excited by their ambition.
If this goes ahead, parents and children, particularly those living in the central parts of the city, stand to benefit from having an extra 400 plus desperately needed primary school places made available to them over the next five years.
