Following the announcement that additional money will be allocated to school building repairs, I today asked the Education Secretary to reassure teachers and parents at Orchard Academy in Swanley, and West Kingsdown Church of England Primacy School that they will be prioritised. I know from my visits how urgently repair is needed, however money provided to date has not been sufficient to cover all the work.
I am meeting with the Minister responsible for repairs later this week. I also look forward to taking the Education Secretary up on his offer of a meeting, so that we can make some further progress on these urgently needed works.
