Parents protest against expansion of Engayne Primary School

Havering Council has announced a plan to accept 120 more pupils next year to Engayne Primary School, in Upminster, to help the shortage of school places in the area.

Steven Thomas, spokesperson of the Engayne Parents and Residents Committee, said: “This is going to have a major impact – the quality of our children’s education is not only at risk but so is their safety as more parents will park outside of the school, making it more chaotic and dangerous than it already is.

“It will be a complete nightmare if these plans do go ahead.”

The proposal includes building additional classrooms, creating an extension to the KS1 hall and enlarging the existing kitchen and catering facilities.

Construction work at the school could take more than three years to complete.

    The school will get a lot more money if they extend. Probably why the governors are in favour
    I think it is totally ridiculous. It is mayhem there at beginning and end of each day at the moment and residents have to put up with a lot of abuse from parents parking across drives etc.
    Part of the problem is that a lot of children come from outside of the borough so they come by car
