Keys handed over for new Seven Kings free school
The organisation that will run the borough’s newest primary school in Seven Kings has been handed the keys to their building.
Work has already begun by E-Act to transform the Downshall Centre, Aldborough Road South, into a �2.8million free school ready for its first pupils in September. When full, it will cater for 420 pupils.
As a free school it will be independent of council �control and aims to reflect the views of the community.
E-Act chairman Noorzaman Rashid said: “We are �really looking forward to working very closely with the council and community to ensure that young people at the beginning of their �education have the very best possible start.
“E-Act has national experience of best practice in education and learning and we want to make sure that that experience can be utilised at a local level that is sensitive to the needs of Redbridge children and their families.”
