schools funding - edward timpson, new Tory candidate for Eddisbury

Eddisbury MP Edward Timpson said schools in Calveley and Tarporley will benefit from Government funding to improve school facilities.

The constituency has been allocated a share of £434 million investment to expand classrooms, upgrade facilities and improve education across the UK.

Recipients include Calveley Primary Academy, Tarporley High School and Sixth Form College, Over Hall Community School and Sandiway Primary School.

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

Mr Timpson said: “Coronavirus has taken a toll on us all, not least our children, who have been kept from their friends, their teachers and their schools.

“As we exit lockdown we must focus on getting children back to school – and ensure that schools have the facilities and classrooms they need to support the high-quality education our children deserve.

“This funding will help ensure all children have the very best possible schools and education, enabling them to gain all the knowledge and skills they need for success.”

Education Secretary, the Rt Hon Gavin Williamson MP added: “My number one focus will always be to make sure every student has access to excellent education and training.

“Replacing and upgrading poor condition school and college buildings with modern, energy efficient designs will give our students and teachers the environment they deserve, and support them to maximise their potential.

“As we look forward to this September and all children returning to school, we can be assured that for years to come this country’s education system will drive opportunity and prosperity for all.”
