Andrew Mitchell MP welcomes new priority school building funding

12th May 2014

Sutton MP Andrew Mitchell has welcomed a new £2 billion fund to help rebuild schools most in need of urgent repair, which could benefit schools in Sutton Coldfield.

Conservatives today announced a second round of funding for the successful Priority Schools Building Programme, which is already helping 261 schools across England, including Plantsbrook School in Sutton Coldfield.

Andrew Mitchell commented “Delivering the best schools for our children so the next generation can gain the skills they need to succeed in life is a key part of the Conservatives’ long term economic plan to secure Britain’s future. It is only by taking difficult decisions on public spending that Conservatives have been able to afford to protect the schools budget and provide funding for school rebuilding. Only by sticking to our long-term economic plan can we provide the first class education that our young people deserve”.
