A permanent site for the Heights Primary School

18 July 2016

The Education Funding Agency made a formal offer to Reading Borough Council, the Trustees of Mapledurham Playing Fields. This was considered by the Council's Heights Free School Sub Committee on 12 July 2016 who agreed to consider the offer further. The report to the committee indicated that the offer includes "a payment of £1.36m, of which the EFA have attributed £30,775 to the value of the part of The Trust Land which they wish to purchase for the school." The full report is available at http://www.reading.gov.uk/media/5622/Item-4/pdf/Item_4.pdf. See also http://www.anewhomefortheheights.co.uk/

Since then, the Mapledurham Playing Fields Action Group have established a new charity called Mapledurham Playing Fields Foundation and have set out an initiative called Fit4all. http://www.protectmpf.uk/

CADRA supports the need for the school but remains neutral on the choice of site.
