A major remodelling of Pucklechurch CE VC primary school has started in the last few weeks after a long-running campaign by local councillor, Sandra Grant.
The phased £1.72m remodelling and extension scheme will see permanent fit for purpose accommodation provided at the village school with construction work due to be completed in November of next year.
The complex scheme involves the erection of three single storey extensions to form additional kitchen, classroom and administration space, including a new library. The construction of 2 access ramps, proposed landscaping and new netball court also form part of the scheme.
Work has been programmed to ensure that disruption to pupils is kept to an absolute minimum.
Conservative councillor for the Boyd Valley, Sandra Grant, has been campaigning to refurbish the area’s village primary schools for years, including Pucklechurch. She said:
“I am thrilled that the long-running campaign that pupils, parents and I have been spearheading has reached such a huge milestone.
The school has been in urgent need of substantial investment for a number of years and I am really looking forward to seeing the positive impact that the completion of these major improvements will have on everyday school life, particularly for pupils.”
“I would have really struggled with this campaign were it not for the immense support that I received from members of the local community, and so again I would like to put on record my thanks to them.”
