Danesmore Park Primary School

Councillor Phil Bateman said "Tonight at City Council there was an item that was of special interest to Wednesfield North."

He added "Councillor Mrs Paddy Bradley placed a motion on the Agenda criticising the consultation process surrounding the closure of Danesmore Park School. There was a debate in the Chamber that I did not take part in because of the need to declare a 'prejudicial interest'. I left the Chamber at this point to stay within the law.

The motion I understand was voted down by City Council, and the call made to defer closure was also lost.

In the meantime the Adjudicator is considering arguments for the school's retention. A report is expected from him in a few days time."
