Nottinghamshire County Council’s Schools Building Improvement Programme, part of the Schools Capital Programme, has approved the £7m funding for the 2019/20 academic year.

The Council has carried out feasibility studies at more than 50 schools were there was an urgent need for improvement works or an assessment of risk.

The planned work includes remedial work to biomass boilers, kitchen ventilation, boiler and heating pipework replacement, heating cabinet replacements, drainage and roofing.

Listed below are some of the schools in the Gedling, Broxtowe and Rushcliffe areas which will benefit from the investment:

  • Lambley Primary School
  • Woodthorpe Infant School
  • Kinoulton Primary School
  • Lady Bay School
  • Lambley Primary School
  • Bramcote Hills Prmary School
  • Radcliffe on Trent Junior School
  • Woodthorpe Infant School
  • Sutton Bonington Primary School

Coun Philip Owen, Chairman of the Children and Young People’s Committee, said:

”It is vital that we carry out essential health and safety and maintenance work at our schools to avoid the risk of closure, so I’m delighted that so many schools across the county will benefit from the Schools Building Improvement Programme.

These works will be carried out at a number of schools where other major works are planned, thereby maximising investment whilst saving on project costs and minimising disruption.”
