(Photograph) - Herefordshire council last week rejected plans for a new Steiner academy because it has no need for additional school places. Sylvie Sklan, (above) the Steiner Waldorf Schools' lead representative, said the academy had been accepted by the Department for Education and Skills, even though it was not in a deprived area, because it would increase 'innovation'. The 3 to 16 academy would have 330 places, 60 more than at the fee-paying Hereford Waldorf school on an adjacent site in Much Dewchurch. Backers of the academy will appeal against the council's decision. Photograph:Stephen Shepherd
