Parents campaign against 400 pupils sharing school building

Parents at a primary school near Crystal Palace have launched a campaign against plans for 400 secondary school pupils to temporarily share the building.

The new secondary school is due to open next year in Clapham, but has yet to secure a permanent site or buildings.

Protestors say proposals to share facilities at Paxton Primary would lead to overcrowding and have an impact on the quality of teaching.

A staggered school day has been suggested as a way around this, but it would involve 7:30 starts.
