Cllr Michael Pavey, Brent Council lead member for Children and Families has reacted to the Guest Posting below with this statement:
"Copland School will not be sold off. The site will be redeveloped, but as an improved school - not for non-educational uses. All the steps Brent Council have taken have the sole purpose of improving teaching and learning in the school. The recent Ofsted report found that two-thirds of teaching is inadequate or requires improvement. This is a tragedy which is desperately failing local families. Turning around this terrible situation requires tough actions. However there is absolutely no question of running down the school to sell it off. Quite the opposite: we are determined that Copland will become a successful school that parents are proud to send their kids to."
