messageParents focus meet and greet with Cllr Lisa Rajan

Hi,

The Liberal Democrats will be in Peckham Rye, around the Café and One O’clock Club next Tuesday (25/08) at 12, speaking with parents and discussing how to make Peckham Rye a better place to bring up children. We have Councillor Lisa Rajan, the executive member for children's services on Southwark Council, coming along too; so this is your chance to speak directly with the council member responsible about issues which are important to you.

I know many parents have had issues with the admissions process for primary schools this year and so we'd really like to hear your experiences so we can work to ensure that any problems which can be sorted are done so for next year's applications. Ultimately, Peckham Rye needs more primary schools. Achieving this will take time and so we need to try to get things fixed in the meantime. Southwark Council has applied to the Government's Department for Children, Families and Schools for extra money which should help, if we're successful.

We also really want to hear people's views on the play facilities in Peckham Rye Park and if there's anything we can do to make things better.

Please come along and talk to us! If you can't make it please feel free to message me with any comments, or post them on here.

Laurie, many of us are concerned about the potential closure of Bojangles nursery on Upland Road, where more than 60 local kids aged 1 to 4 attend. We only found out about this today and they will be evicted from the current premises on 30 August. Details elsewhere on this forum.

This is bound to put even more pressure on the limited preschool places in the area, may need an extra nursary class.

Hi,

Yes I've heard about the nursery closure today. The Lib Dem councillors in East Dulwich ward are attending the meeting about this tonight, and are trying to sort something out asap. I will chase them up tomorrow and post an update on here as soon as I hear something.

Please though, if there's a shortage of nursery places, come along and tell Cllr Lisa Rajan on Tuesday. The more people who can add their voice, the more effective we'll be in changing things for the better.
