The MP for Hornsey and Wood Green visited the primary school today, and was given a tour by Head teacher Oweda Harrison. Many of the buildings and classrooms are in need of repair.
Hundreds of schools across the country are seeking money from the Government’s Priority Schools Buildings Programme – to refurbish and rebuild old buildings.
Schools’ Minister David Laws, also a Liberal Democrat, is set to announce the successful schools in the £2bn programme before the end of the month.
Lynne Featherstone MP said:
“Earlham Primary is a fantastic local school, but it does urgently need money to improve its buildings. I have already contacted the Schools’ Minister to ask that Earlham is included in the Priority School Building Programme.
“In a truly fair society, all children should have equal access to decent school facilities. I have made this case to government ministers and will continue to do so.”
