THE Krishna-Avanti Primary, which could be the UK's first state-funded Hindu school, has launched a "register of interest" for parents of prospective pupils.

The charity behind the school, the I-Foundation, which works to further Verdic culture and philosophy, hopes to find a site for it in Harrow.

The first proposed site, on Pinner Park Farm, was dropped in the face of strong public opposition to building on the green belt.

A new site, on the William Ellis playing fields in Edgware, is also being opposed by residents.

The I Foundation said the school was "aimed at providing Hindu parents with the option of sending their children to a school based on their faith".
