This petition is now closed, as its deadline has passed.

We the undersigned petition Westminster City Council to reconsider the way it will implement the Single Funding Formula for Early Years settings. More details

More details from petition creator

We believe that WCC’s proposed implementation of the Single Funding Formula will ultimately lead to the closure of Tachbrook Nursery School, along with Westminster’s other three maintained nurseries: the basic hourly rate and Variable Factors proposed by the EYSFF Review Group will conspire to cut Tachbrook Nursery School’s funding to such an extent that it may no longer be possible for the nursery to meet their legal requirements, or the fixed costs they incur because of their school status.

Tachbrook Nursery School provides outstanding free education to local children, many of whom come from the disadvantaged families on which the Government has pledged to concentrate Early Years funding.

Does the current Council really wish the demise of an outstanding Nursery School to be part of its legacy? We ask you to reconsider your future funding plans for Tachbrook Nursery School, so it can continue to offer an exceptional level of learning and teaching to many more generations of local families.
