Meg Munn MP welcomes Government funds to create 21st Century school buildings

Thursday, February 12, 2004

The goal of every child being educated in 21st Century buildings came a step closer today as School Standards Minister David Miliband today unveiled the fourteen local education authority projects that will spearhead the Government’s Building Schools for the Future programme to rebuild or refurbish every secondary school in England.

The first wave of the programme is worth £2.1bn and will benefit over 180 schools around the country. Due to commence in 2005-06 the scheme includes three Yorkshire LEAs:

?        Bradford

?        Leeds

?        Sheffield

Meg Munn MP welcomed the news that Sheffield LEA would benefit from the new funds, saying:

“This new investment will now occur across Sheffield local education authority, not just in individual schools. This will allow them to plan and build new school facilities in a far more strategic way, cutting through legal and design bureaucracy.

“Building Schools for the Future is great news for Sheffield. A new body, Partnerships for Schools, will work with the LEA and a private sector partner to construct, maintain and operate new facilities, supporting Head teachers in creating new schools and allowing teachers to focus on what they do best.”

Labour’s David Milliband MP, School Standards Minister, announced the new funding, saying:

“For the first time since the Victorian era, we are joining major capital investment with major educational reform to transform secondary education all over the country.

“Building Schools for the Future will use capital investment to drive forward educational reform, rebuilding or refurbishing every school in England to provide flexible, inclusive, attractive learning environments that teachers want to teach in and pupils want to learn in.

We will deliver tailored classroom facilities to support innovative teaching styles; high quality facilities to support subject specialism; and integrated ICT; all to help deliver learning tailored to the needs of every child.”
