Thanks to £150,000 additional investment by your Labour council, all nineteen city bus routes that rely on council subsidy have been saved, helping the city work for everyone. These bus routes link communities such as Portslade, Saltdean and Rottingdean to the city centre, stations and hospitals, and also include school buses and “Breeze Up” services from the city to the Downs.

Dan_Chapman.pngLeader of the Council Cllr Warren Morgan and Chair of the Children, Young People and Skills Committee Cllr Dan Chapman have expressed their concern to the Regional Schools Commissioner Mr Dominic Herrington over the process to decide the new sponsor for City Academy Whitehawk.

The Labour Administration has highlighted that there was no consultation with the Council, elected officials, parents or the local community before the decision by the Regional Schools Commissioner on a new sponsor for the academy. 

The Labour Administration told Mr Herrington: “We believe in a transparent and accountable system of education, and the lack of consultation over this decision contradicts that vital principle and agreement we have with the city.”

The administration has asked that a clear process be laid out going forward, that involves not only councillors but most importantly the local community.

Cllr Dan Chapman said:

“We have made our views known to the Regional Schools Commissioner because it is essential that the local community should be represented when new academy sponsors are being looked for. We believe that schools and academies should be locally accountable and important decisions like this should not be made centrally without consultation. We have asked the Regional Schools Commissioner to rethink this process so that it is more transparent for the future.”
