Oliver has welcomed the announcement by the Department for Education that Little Reddings Primary School in Bushey will be included in the next round of the £1 billion School Rebuilding Programme.
Little Redding’s Primary School will be just one of the 50 schools across England which has been included in the second round of the Rebuilding Programme. The rebuilding programme, launched last year, forms part of the Government’s commitment to rebuild or refurbish 500 schools over the next ten years.
School Rebuilding Programme is the first major rebuilding programme to be launched since 2014 and is designed to create modern education environments, provide new facilities from classrooms, to sports halls and dining rooms. The rebuild works will also mean that the schools will be greener and more energy efficient, helping meet the Government’s net zero target.
The £1 billion School Rebuilding Programme is in addition to the £760m announced last year targeted at upgrading and repairing school and FE college buildings.
Speaking on the announcement, Oliver said: ‘It is fantastic news that Little Reddings Primary School has been selected as one of the next 50 schools to be improved through our rebuilding programme.
I am committed to ensuring that our children receive the education they deserve and this announcement will mean that the staff at Little Reddings Primary have the facilities they need to teach the next generation of Bushey children.’
