Maltby School forced to ‘teach students in cupboards

Share on Social Media

Today, I have written to the Education Secretary to raise concerns and ask urgent questions about Hilltop School in Maltby.

Hilltop is facing unprecedented demands and budget constraints. This week, a shocking report by BBC news reveals that Hilltop is forced to teach children with special educational needs and disabilities in cupboards and portable cabins, with thin walls and loud floors. Cohen, a 14 year old, is autistic and is unable to manage his condition at school in these circumstances. He has been suffering from panic attacks and hyperventilating at school to the extent that he is unable to attend.

Hilltop School was due to be rebuilt entirely, with a new site offering better and more appropriate facilities, under Labour’s Building Schools for the Future Programme in 2009. However, this Programme was scrapped by the Conservative government in 2010.

I have written to ask what steps can be taken now to help the school – whose staff do an incredible job – and the students who are unable to attend school in these circumstances. Read my letter below. [insert finger down emoji]

Have you or your family experienced similar difficulties with over-subscription and over-crowding of schools? Please get in touch so I can take this up with the Education Secretary when she replies.
