Downhills won't take it lying down

Dr Terence Sullivan

Reports of Downhills Primary School's demise are greatly exaggerated ("Downhills loses the fight as academies move in", 23 March). This week alone, I have joined a picket at Downhills of the imposed interim executive board, passed a motion at my local NUT association offering support (including of a possible strike there) and presented a giant card in solidarity, and I don't even work at the school. Over? The campaign has only just begun.
