School Set for new classrooms
The two new classrooms are set to be built at a Rainworth school as part of work to up-grade accommodation for pupils and staff.
The permanent classrooms - being created to replace a double mobile classrooms at Lake View Primary School - are part of a £4.5million programme of work across the area announced by Nottinghamshire County Council.
Councillor Philip Owen, chairman of the council's children and young people's committee, said: "This investment will help improve the learning environment for both pupils and staff by providing light, airy and spacious permanent classrooms in lace of the previous temporary ones, or providing additional accommodation which allows for the current and projected increase in demand for primary school places in certain areas of the county. In the process, 33 more places are also being created overall. This £4.5m is cash we received from the Government's Basic Needs Fund as our 2017/18 allocation. The amount we get annually is based on information we supply about school capacities, admission numbers and projected future demand for places".
The programme includes replacing mobile classrooms, preparing for a projected increase in demand for school places, and more comfortably housing pupils where the schools are already under pressure.
