Derbyshire schools hopeful for cash for modernisation projects

Have your say

Four schools in Derbyshire are hoping for funding to pay for modernisation projects.

Derbyshire County Council is to meet next week to discuss schemes to improve Spire Infant School in Chesterfield, Findern Primary School, Hadfield Infant School and Hasland Hall School.

If approval is granted the schemes will cost a combined total of £500,000.

A spokesman said: “Making sure Derbyshire children get the best possible education is one of our main priorities.

“But Coalition cuts to our capital funding means we haven’t got the resources to improve all the schools we know need improving.

“By carefully allocation the money we do have, we are doing what we can to ensure our schools are modernised.”
