Future Adur Schools Team
Future Adur Schools Team is a group of parents, representing over 500 local parents concerned about local school capacity meeting rising demand.
We campaign for safe and appropriate provision of school places, and better long-term planning.
We do this by raising awareness of the issue, sharing useful information, conducting research, and lobbying the powers that be to work together better with each other and parents.
The parents have worked hard to:
– conduct surveys on drift (propensity of those moving into the area to continue/start a family)
– identify school need arising from large developments
– understanding the WSCC process of expanding existing school or building new
– ascertaining developers contributions (106 monies) to education infrastructure
– seeking FOI’s to understand the education monies contributed from existing developments, and future council capacity plans.
– successfully sought the ring-fencing of funds for Swiss Gardens primary school, Shoreham
– shared our experiences across all media, assisting parents to lobby where needed
