Hazel Grove Primary in Chapel Street is to have a £3.3 million rebuild and refurbishment, announced at the school last week by Schools Minister David Laws MP, with Liberal Democrat colleagues Andrew Stunell MP & Lisa Smart, Prospective MP for Hazel Grove.
Lisa Smart, Prospective MP for Hazel Grove said -
"This announcement is fantastic news for families and teachers in Hazel Grove. Hazel Grove Primary will be able to upgrade its classrooms and other facilities to top quality. This money fought for and delivered by Liberal Democrats in government will make a real difference.
“Last week the Conservatives set out plans to cut school budgets if they are in power by themselves after the election. I am proud that Liberal Democrats are continuing to make the case and win more investment for local schools. Making sure all children in Stockport get a fair start in life should always be a top priority, and I can't wait to see the plans develop."
Liberal Democrat Schools Minister David Laws MP said -
"I am delighted to be able to announce money that will allow Hazel Grove Primary to make badly needed improvements to their building. School buildings that aren't up to scratch unfairly hold our children and young people back.”
“Every child deserves the opportunity to achieve their full potential, and improving Hazel Grove Primary will make sure that many more children in Stockport receive a good education."
Andrew Stunell MP said –
“I am delighted that this important project has got the go-ahead. Now we can all look forward to a fully modernised school, as part of a national Coalition programme to improve education.”
“This includes the new Pupil Premium, bringing millions of pounds to Stockport Schools, and free school meals for all children under 7 to give them a flying start in life.”
The work is expected to start next year and will provide local children with the highest standard of school buildings to complement the high standards of teaching and learning the school provides.
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.
