Public consultation on opening a new secondary school in East Reading #rdguk

I recently got the email below consulting people on plans to open a new secondary school on the Crescent Road site in East Reading (Maiden Erlegh 2). We have been campaigning to plug the gap in school places, so it is good to see this moving forwards:

Dear Stakeholder
Public consultation on proposal to open a new school in East Reading
The public consultation on the proposal to establish a new secondary school in East Reading- Maiden Erlegh School in Reading- to open in September 2015 is now open and will run until Monday 24 November 2014.
Our vision is to create another centre of excellence like the Maiden Erlegh School in the Borough of Wokingham. We will do this by:
Providing a stimulating and challenging environment
Ensuring all students make exceptional levels of progress and attain excellent outcomes
Working in close partnerships with families, providing a hub that responds to the needs of the community
Offering a secure and caring community
Our brochure provides detail of our plans - click link to view Maiden Erlegh School in Reading Brochure
Our Admissions policy can be found at the following link, together with the supplementary information form. Admissions Policy 2015-16          Supplementary Information Sheet
Our school policies will be based on the Maiden Erlegh School policies which can be seen at the following link. http://maidenerleghschool.co.uk/information/key-policies/
