Newark: Bleasby Church of England Primary School and East Bridgford St Peter's Church of England Academy to benefit from government Condition Improvement Fund
Schools are to benefit from funding to improve, upgrade and replace existing facilities to become more environmentally friendly.
21 projects at 14 schools will go ahead after successful bids from the government’s Condition Improvement Fund.
The fund is an annual bidding round to which schools can apply.
Improvements include a new roof at Bleasby Church of England Primary School and a new heating system and roof for East Bridgford St Peter’s Church of England Academy.
Sam Smith, vice-chairman of Nottinghamshire County Council’s children and young people’s committee, said: “I’m very pleased that schools in our county have been able to secure this extra government funding.
“It means better facilities for our children and young people.
“Many of these new projects will mean our schools will become more environmentally friendly, using more efficient and sustainable heating systems and better insulation.”
