Gloucestershire Council plans schools upgrades

Four primary schools in Gloucestershire are in line for extensions and refurbishment after the council was successful in a bid for £12 million of Government funding.

Cabinet member for schools Joan Nash said: "This is great news for Gloucestershire schools and will result in modern and bright buildings."

The schools Gloucestershire County Council have identified for new buildings or revamps are St Peter's Primary in Gloucester, Kings Stanley Primary School near Stroud, Severnbanks Primary in Lydney and Lynworth and Whaddon Primary schools in Cheltenham.

Alongside the £12 million from the primary capital programme the council wants to use other funding alongside it such as grants and developer contributions.

Ms Nash said: "The county council worked closely with all of the schools and the Church of England and Catholic Diocese to put together the bid which had to demonstrate how the buildings could transform learning and improve pupils' outcomes and achievements."
