Ilmington Primary School starts £550,00 investment scheme
Work commences next week on a £550,000 investment scheme for the children of Ilmington C of E Primary School.
Two new classrooms for Classes 1 and 2 are to be constructed to replace old life-expired wooden classrooms erected as a temporary measure in 1992. The new classrooms will be connected directly to the existing main school buildings providing completely undercover access to all facilities for the first time and greatly improving safety and security at the school. An enlarged outside recreation area for the Reception class will also be constructed and the school's kitchen is to be enlarged.
The programme is being funded by Warwickshire Education Authority and is due to be completed in September in time for the new school year.
Ilmington School was classed as 'Outstanding' at its Ofsted inspection last November and also achieved 'Outstanding' status at its Church Authority inspection in December. The new classrooms and other alterations will strengthen the school's facilities even further.
Headteacher Sally Naish said: "The rebuilding of the school has been planned for several years and everyone is delighted that it is now about to happen. It will be ready in time for our new children starting school in September and we still have places available for this year's intake. All the children will benefit from the improved teaching facilities that our education authority has funded."
