JUST when everyone thought Roke could not attract any more drama, it appears the issue has spread to another school in the area.
Harris has managed to attract the anger of the neighbouring Kenley Primary School which says the company's plans for a new school name and uniform are far too similar to their own.
Georgina Catanach, Kenley Primary's headteacher, wrote to parents at the end of May to urge them to write to Harris.
"As you are aware Roke Primary School has been forced to become an academy," she said. "I was dismayed to find out that their suggested name is 'Harris Primary Academy Kenley' and the new uniform is navy blue. It has been noted by parents at Roke that this is very, very similar to Kenley Primary, in name and uniform."
She even had to assure parents that Kenley would not be subsumed into a Roke academy.
"It is important that Harris Federation appreciate that there cannot be two schools named Kenley in the area," she said.
Harris have refused to even consider keeping Roke in the school's new name.
