Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, has welcomed new funding to improve the condition of two schools in Reddish.
Reddish Vale High School and St Elisabeth’s Church of England Primary School have successfully secured funding from the Condition Improvement Fund.
The Condition Improvement Fund aims to address significant condition need, keeping schools safe and in good working order. This includes funding projects to address health and safety issues, building compliance and poor building condition.
In the 2020-21 round, over £434 million has been allocated to 1,476 projects at 1,243 academies, sixth form colleges and non-diocesan voluntary aided schools.
Andrew Gwynne said:
“I am delighted that Reddish Vale and St Elisabeth’s have successfully secured this funding to improve the condition of their premises; this is great news for both pupils and staff.
“All children and young people deserve a learning environment that is safe and suitable, and unfortunately there are still too many schools with facilities that are not fit for purpose.
“There are other schools across the Denton and Reddish constituency that are in desperate need of similar investment and I will continue to push for this.”
