Darren Henry, Member of Parliament for Broxtowe has welcomed the Government’s announcement that 3 schools in the constituency are set to benefit from the £498 million Conditional Improvement Fund.
This funding is available annually to support academies, sixth form colleges and voluntary aided schools to address issues relating to school buildings and provides the necessary capital funding to ensure that our young people are able to learn in a safe and secure educational environment.
Here in Broxtowe Alderman White School, Bramcote College and John Clifford Primary School have been successful in obtaining funds as part of this year’s programme. The allocation will help to support a range of projects including replacement roofs and improvements to fire safety and electrical systems ensuring that the schools are to the highest possible standard.
Darren Henry commented “I am delighted to see that 3 schools in Broxtowe have been successful in their bids for this year’s Conditional Improvement Fund. Keeping our school buildings in good working order is essential to helping our children and young people to achieve their full potential.
I regularly engage with schools across the constituency, many of which are situated in older buildings. I know that this announcement will be most welcome and will be key to helping our local schools to continue delivering the best possible standard of education for future generations.”
