On January 23, 2004 the BBC News reported, "Plans for a Sikh primary school have been given the go-ahead. The school, to be built in Slough, Berkshire, would be only the second Sikh primary in England - the other being in Hayes, west London. Teachers on the local schools organisation committee had voted narrowly against the idea, feeling that the town has enough schools already. The case was referred to the Office of the Schools Adjudicator, who has now ruled in Sikh parents' favour."
