Temporary classrooms to cater for boom in children

Temporary classrooms to cater for boom in children

First published in News

A BOOM in children has led to plans for two temporary classrooms in a primary school.

Saltdean Primary School, in Chiltington Way, Saltdean, hopes to accommodate 30 more children if the plan is granted, taking the school’s intake to 480.

Brighton and Hove City Council officers have recommended planning permission is granted, providing the classrooms are removed within five years.

Oh fantastic, the English have had some sort of post war baby boom!!!???. I am guessing not - but its not like Labour give a sh1t, they engineered this on purpose. How great is it that Blairs Lies are now coming back to bite him in Iraq (not that he will go to jail). What was it that prescott said, oh yeah " there is no such thing as the Englishman". Labour certainly are trying their best to make sure this is the case.

My kids went to that school just over ten years ago. It was lovely.
Just as we left to live in Spain there were protests in Saltdean about refugees moving into the area.
We have seen in the Argus about the family who live by the oval whose son was killed fighting a Jihad.
I suppose the younger ones are being accommodated for as well.

There has been no surprise in rising numbers of children to attend schools in UK, the numbers have been steadily increasing and all babies births are registered SO the government and councils have years to increase school sizes and NO temporary classrooms should be necessary but of course these tax evaders leading us now couldn't care less about teaching standards. All the elite send their kids to private schools.

Stop voting in labour/cons/lib dems/ukip etc to avoid this happening anymore.

We are now 25th in the world for reading standards - that is appalling.

Sorry to disappoint the immigrant bashers but the increase is not due to immigration. As a Saltdean resident with children who attend the school I can put your fears at bay. The increase is due to the amount of families who have moved to Saltdean over the last few years, mainly from central Brighton, your get more for your money and its a lovely quiet and safe place to bring up children. As for the immigrant centre, well this never came about, instead millions of pounds were spent developing the site in to (rather expensive) housing. We moved here a few years ago, since then at least 7 families with very young children have moved in to our street, you replicate this across Saltdean and you get a shortage of school places. Totally agree with previous post, St Aubyns school closed on Rottingdean high street last year so there is an empty school building already close by, I guess the free holders are holding out for the highest bidder.

And why are people leaving Brighton? Too many moving there from London, perhaps? And why are people leaving London in droves?

You can argue all you want, but the fact is that immigration is causing over-crowding in this country, NOT the home birthrate.

Well I can't dispute your story if that's what you say but in the 5 years I've been in Saltdean and visiting that shop at least every other day I can honestly say I've hardly ever heard a foreign accent. Go to the school and see for yourself, I would say its somewhere around 95% kids from Bitish families, last years intake, which needed the first extra classroom was vurtually all English, out of 60 kids.

Of course Brighton is a desirable place to live....that's why people move there.

It's a combination of an insane immigration policy and paying people to have babies, they themselves couldn't afford. It's not the responsibility of other taxpayers to support your choice to have children and removing that important link was madness. Get a job, get a home, have a child and it was always hard from any individual on an average wage to afford a roof over their head, so if you choose to 'go it 'alone' it's not other folk's fault !

And before you get back to me about people in benefits, there was an article in the Argus a few months ago about the different wards in Brightin and Hove, Saltdean came near the top of least amount of people on benefits.

Hang on....it was YOU who brought Brighton up.

Saltdean IS affected by immigration to the UK, just like every other village/town/city which experiences an influx of English people escaping the immigration hotspots like London.

And there is nothing right-wing about pointing out what immigration is and how it affects people......even The Guardian has articles about it.

Actually, the immigrants produce more babies than we do, especially the muslims.

It's a natural human reaction to produce offspring.

So you've lived there for a mighty five years and yet claim to speak for all Saltdean residents?? Most of them won't have a clue who you are.

Discussing the reasons for the shortages of school places isn't small-minded in the slightest. In fact, it should always be a major priority for any government to ensure enough places exist, regardless of the reasons as to why places are in short supply.

The reason for the growing requirement for school places is due to the growing desirability of the area as an affordable place to move to. We moved to Saltdean from Brighton - Why? Because it is a clean, spacious area, its right by the sea, right by the downs, the lido is hopefully going to reopen, and its affordable. We were able to buy a decent sized family home something we could never have done in Brighton. The whole area is changing with retiree bungalows being converted into family homes and £150k being spent on the Spanish Lady pub, making it a more welcoming place for families.

The nurserys are fantastic, as is the school. I look forward to my children starting the primary school (portacabin or otherwise) and am glad they are accomadating them.

As for the zenophobic (at the least) comments on immigration, Saltdean is the most undiverse British White area I have lived in and would benefit from a bit of diversity. I moved to Brighton from London for an affordable place to buy a first home and because its a great place to live, likewise i moved to saltdean for the above reasons. Not to escape immigration.

Temporary classrooms arent a new thing, my primary school 25 years ago had portacabins. Areas change.
The reason for the growing requirement for school places is due to the growing desirability of the area as an affordable place to move to. We moved to Saltdean from Brighton - Why? Because it is a clean, spacious area, its right by the sea, right by the downs, the lido is hopefully going to reopen, and its affordable. We were able to buy a decent sized family home something we could never have done in Brighton. The whole area is changing with retiree bungalows being converted into family homes and £150k being spent on the Spanish Lady pub, making it a more welcoming place for families.
