Saving The Deanes School

Rebecca was a leading figure in the fight to Save The Deanes School, helping the school's leadership construct their case against the closure and speaking against it in hearings and cabinet meetings at Essex County Council.

Rebecca also compiled a case for consideration by the School's Adjudicator and gave the final speech at the public hearing before the School's Adjudicator ruled that the school should remain open.

She also worked with the Department for Education to secure the school academy status so the future of the school is now squarely in the hands of school governors. She has continued to campaign for the school to receive vital grants for building maintenance from Essex County Council.
