    Looks like we have been stopped too... a little hard to tell as it doesnt state our full school name

    So whether there were plans for other things or if it just means the whole school...

    Interesting indeed... wonder when or if they will tell us...

    Blackburn is unaffected, but Bolton is mostly stopped. We're a joint one though, and the Managed IT Service is definitely across both boroughs. I'm now confused!

    I don't know how i feel about it. Getting TUPED into a big company would have been good as there would be a nice long ladder to climb, but would it have been as simple as that? Then obviously for the good of the kids, but again is it as simple as new build = good school?
    There is a part of me which is laughing at the fact that if the govt./councils had got their fingers outs of their bureaucratic asses then most of the schools would have been far enough through and the cost been far less that BSF would have went ahead.

    @j17sparky; The "Damn" is more at the fact that my school is set for a meeting with a wrecking ball, and merged with a neighbouring school... I'm getting TUPE'd to RM in September, may be better, it may not - only time will tell...

    I've been following the debate and made notes. Some interesting stuff and added it to a news article that should be up on the front page soon.

    Don't know whether I'm happy or sad. On the one hand I was not in favour of a managed IT service for obvious reasons (job security). But on the other schools need to be rebuilt especially ours and many others of course. BSF won't be happening for us but what the future may bring could be even worse.

    I would have chuckled if our osp in rutland was scrapped, final fit out (when we get the keys) happens in October and it's virtually complete from a structure point of view.

    On another point, I think we'll open just at the right point with regards to the pain the government is going to pass on to the public, hopefully we'll be able to weather the impending storm the cuts will bring to ict

    Sadly not all schools will be so lucky

    Ours not listed either, we were in the very latter stages I think wave 6a or even later, so maybe they have not included schools in the latter stages, as obviously they would be cut. Mind you that list was hobbled together pretty quickly after the announcement so maybe there was errors compiling it.

    That list only includes areas that had already started BSF planning, if your area hadn't then it won't be on the list
