Schools across Bury South will benefit from Government funds to upgrade facilities
Bury South has been allocated its share of the £483 million investment to expand classrooms, upgrade facilities and improve the education of children across the whole country.
Projects will be funded at the following schools:
- Elms Bank
- St Monica's RC High School
- St John's Church of England Primary School
- Wesley Methodist Primary School
- Higher Lane Primary School
- Sunny Bank Primary School
This funding will ensure schools have well-maintained facilities to provide students with safe environments that support a high-quality education.
This major new investment will ensure our schools and colleges can focus on teaching, with brand new buildings and better facilities so that every child gets the world-class education all our children deserve.
Schools across the country have played their part in responding to coronavirus, ensuring their doors remained open for the children of essential workers – who have kept the NHS, public services and economy going throughout this crisis.
Now all children are back at school it's essential we ensure buildings are fit for purpose so that children can catch-up on missed schooling in a safe and appropriate environment.
Commenting, Christian Wakeford, MP for Bury South said:
“I am very pleased that schools across Radcliffe, Whitefield and Prestwich are going to receive funding to make much needed improvements to school buildings.
I've said time and again that Levelling Up must mean providing high quality education so that each child can have the best chance possible to go on and fulfil their aspirations. To deliver this we need to ensure schools have the facilities and classrooms they need to support the education our children deserve.
“This funding will help ensure all children have the very best possible schools and education, enabling them to gain all the knowledge and skills they need for success.”
