Increasing pressure on school places has brought a strong response from Warley MP John Spellar -; Put Local Families FIRST.
John Spellar MP said:-
“The latest figures across the country show more and more children not getting their first choice and there is huge pressure in Smethwick. It is clear that urgent action must be taken and I would urge the Council and local schools to ensure that the first option for places goes to local families, those on the Electoral Register.
“If there is a problem with National regulations I want to know about it so we can take it up with the Minister and his opposite number. We have to put LOCAL FAMILIES FIRST.”
