Primary schools in Rutland and Bourne receive government money for building repairs

Primary school buildings will benefit from some much-needed repairs thanks to a series of government grants.

Three Rutland schools and one in Bourne have been chosen to receive a slice of the government's condition improvement fund.

The £483m will help schools to upgrade their buildings and sites.

Langham Primary School will receive money for its heating, Empingham Primary School will be able to replace a flat roof and Cottesmore Academy has secured money to buy new windows.

Rutland MP Alicia Kearns (Con) said: "Our children deserve the very best, and having the right buildings makes a real difference to allow children to learn in the best possible environment.

“It’s great news that schools in Rutland and Melton have successfully bid for Government funding, and a fantastic vote of confidence from the Government in our phenomenal schools.

“This funding will be a major boost for our communities and help provide the best possible education for our children.”

Bourne Abbey Primary Academy has also been offered a grant to replace a flat roof.

The grant was designed to keep school buildings in good working order, as well as to expand facilities at schools which are rated as good or outstanding by Ofsted.
