And so demonstrating their commitment to protecting vulnerable people Wirral Council are “minded” to close Lyndale School.
This is a school for children with multiple disabilities .
An OFSTED report 2012 stated: ‘A large majority of the pupils have medical conditions which may be life-limiting’
Power Boy Pip says: “Lyndale is a fantastic school and does an absolutely fantastic job for the kids that it looks after who have got profound multiple disabilities.“The problem that we have got is not to do with the standards of the teaching or anything to do with education.”They have had a pretty consistent falling roll, and the problem we have got is one of viability.”I think they are down to 24 children on the roll and there are 40 places. There is a big funding shortfall of £70,000 next year……”
Yes folks £70,000 !!!!!!!! ….. shall we put that into context of the millions and millions and millions of pounds this Council has squandered on incompetence and dishonesty over the past few years?.
For example EACH of the pay offs to the likes of the many former Wirral Council Officers ( insert the dishonest incompetent of your choice) would have provided 2 years funding for this precious resource.
Might we suggest that if Power Boy Pip is thinking of slashing that he sticks to pointing Percy at the porcelain ( don’t have nightmares about that image ) and leaves Lyndale School well alone!!!! ……
