State educated school children need greater provision for sports, according to Ofsted. Correct me if I’m wrong, but a few years ago, a certain political party, then in power, sold of many of the state school playing fields despite many protests at the time. One of the sayings prevalent at then was “they knew the cost of everything and the value of nothing.

  1. It should be remembered that ownership of land for most community schools (previously known as maintained schools) is vested in the local education authorities concerned. The land for foundation (previously voluntary aided) schools is vested in the governors. It is these bodies who have made the decisions to sell, and not thee schools themselves - nor even the Westminster government.

    And are such sales different in principle from churches who choose to sell off some of the land that the occupy to be used for housing development?
