As part of the Government’s investment in school renovations, 11 schools across Rutland and Melton will receive funding for 14 different maintenance projects.
Projects include roof replacements, heating refurbishment, door and window refurbishments as well as upgrades to fire safety.
The funding will come from part of the £498 million Condition Improvement Fund, which will support 1,405 projects at 1,129 academies, sixth-form colleges and voluntary aided schools across England.
The core priority of the fund is keeping eligible academy, sixth-form college and voluntary aided school buildings safe and in good working order, addressing issues such as poor building condition, building compliance, energy efficiency and health and safety.
Alicia Kearns, MP for Rutland and Melton said:
“I’m thrilled that 11 schools have been awarded funding from the Condition Improvement Fund. It is essential that our school buildings are regularly maintained.”
“From heating works at Brownlow Primary School to the replacement of old temporary teaching blocks at Uppingham Community College, these projects will help our children learn in safe, well maintained environments.”
