MP welcomes upgrade cash boost for three Redditch schools

Correspondent 15th Jul, 2020

RIDGEWAY Academy, The Vaynor First School and the Kingfisher School are to benefit from new funding announced by the government.

The cash – £434million nationwide – is aimed at expanding classrooms and upgrading facilities.

It is part of a £1.4bn of capital funding for 2020-21 announced in April and is provided through the Condition Improvement Fund (CIF).

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has also announced a new ten year school rebuilding programme with more than £1bn earmarked for the first 50 projects in 2020-21.

Redditch MP Rachel Maclean said: “I went into politics because I believe every child, no matter their background, deserves access to a first-class education.

“Success in life shouldn’t be a postcode lottery or determined by the circumstances you were born in to.”
