'Shelley plans could spell terminal damage' Mailbag letters also appear online at Mailbag.

MY LETTER is in support of Gary Johnson who you featured recently in an article opposing Shelley Academy's proposals.

Well done Gary Johnson. That's why the Middle Schools in the Shelley pyramid are successful. His passion, energy and enthusiasm inspires staff, children and parents at Kirkburton Middle School.

Exactly the same passion for children's education exists at Scissett Middle School. Standards are high, behaviour is good and parental support is unwavering.

Mr McNally must be one of the few people who doesn't realise what a goldmine he has on his doorstep.

Any headteacher would give his right arm for pupils such as those on leaving Middle School - although I don't expect Mr McNally to go that far!

Collaboration, not takeover, is the way to further improvements and progress.Working together is how successful schools, popular with parents, build on their achievements.

I hope Mr McNally and his governors realise this before their proposals cause terminal damage to an outstanding pyramid of schools and their communities.
