Liberal Democrat Schools Minister David Laws MP has today announced government money to rebuild Earlham Primary School in Wood Green.
The news has been welcomed by local MP Lynne Featherstone, who visited Earlham Primary last week and called for the school to be included in the Government programme.
The money will come from the Priority Schools Building Programme, a £2bn government scheme spearheaded by the Liberal Democrats, to rebuild those schools across the country suffering most from wear and tear.
Schools included in the programme are now able to start developing detailed plans, and are expected to be completed in 2017.
Liberal Democrat Schools Minister David Laws MP said:
“I am delighted to announce money that will allow Earlham Primary to make badly needed improvements to their building.
“Lynne Featherstone MP made a very clear case as to why Earlham needs this money, and I look forward to seeing the improvements.”
MP for Hornsey and Wood Green, Lynne Featherstone, said:
“This announcement is fantastic news for families and teachers in Wood Green.
“Earlham Primary badly needs to upgrade its classrooms and other facilities. This money fought for and delivered by Liberal Democrats in government will make a real difference.
“Making sure all children in Wood Green get a fair start in life should always be a top priority, and I can’t wait to see Earlham’s plans develop.”
