Schools to benefit from upgrades

Posted onPosted on 6th Jul

Schools across Nottinghamshire, including Newark and Sherwood, are to benefit from funding that will be used to improve, upgrade, and replace existing facilities, with several becoming more environmentally friendly due to new heating systems and better insulation.

Twenty one improvement projects at 14 different primary and secondary schools will go ahead after successful bids from the government’s Condition Improvement Fund (CIF).

The CIF is an annual bidding round where eligible schools can apply for funding so they can improve or expand their facilities.

The improvements include:

Bleasby Church of England Primary School – new roof.
Halam Church of England Primary School – new roof and windows.

Coun Sam Smith, vice-chair of Nottinghamshire County Council’s Children and Young People’s Committee, said: “I’m very pleased that schools in our county have been able to secure this extra government funding. It’s great news for schools in Nottinghamshire, and it means better facilities for our children and young people.

“Many of these new projects will mean our schools will become more environmentally friendly, using more efficient and sustainable heating systems and better insultation.”
