Five schools in Nottingham have been given important government funding to improve the condition of school buildings. These schools were identified by Nottingham City Council to receive a share of the £2,679,416 Capital Maintenance Grant for 2022/23.

Walter Halls Primary School in Mapperley have been awarded the most funding with £450,000 going to the school for roofing works. The Hospital and Home Education Learning Centre in Sherwood have been given £100,000 for general refurbishment.

Kerrie Fox, headteacher at the school, said: “Hospital and Home Education Learning Centre are excited about the investment, which will facilitate a light touch refurbishment and enhance our learning environment for the benefit of our students.”

Forest Fields Primary will get £200,000 to go towards structural work to the ceilings at the school and Southwold Primary in Radford will get £180,000 for roofing works. Hempshill Hall Primary in Bulwell has been given £150,000 for fire separation works.

Nottingham City Council has set aside a sum of £270,000 for health and safety measures over the course of the financial year. The remainder will be retained for future projects where and when required.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the council’s Executive Board last week where councillors also agreed to approve a payment of up to £150,000 to Rosehill Special School, in St Ann’s, and up to £500,000 for Ellis Guilford, in Basford, for works to improve the condition of both schools.

This will come from the Building Schools For The Future Lifecycle Reserve Fund, which is ring-fenced funding established to support these schools which were redeveloped through the previous Building Schools for the Future programme.

Councillor Cheryl Barnard, portfolio holder for children, young people and schools at Nottingham City Council, said: “This is really good news for Nottingham and will make a huge difference to the schools which are in line to receive funding for improvements.

“It’s imperative that school buildings are warm, dry and safe working environments for staff and pupils to help them achieve the best results and outcomes that they can. This money allows building projects to start immediately at five schools across Nottingham and boosts our general fund for health and safety contingencies. We look forward to seeing this work progress.”
