Funding to rebuild Archbishop Lanfranc School
24/05/2012 15:41:00

Some good news for the borough today - Michael Gove, the Secretary of State for Education, has announced that Archbishop Lanfranc School will be rebuilt via funding from the Priority School Building Programme.

Following the cancellation of Labour's Building Schools for the Future programme, under which some parts of the country saw all of their schools modernised but Croydon didn't receive a penny, the Coalition Government invited schools in urgent need of repair from across the country to apply for funding. 587 did so and Lanfranc is one of 261 that have been successful.

Although it is not in Croydon Central, I’ve been working closely with Malcolm Wicks MP to lobby on its behalf and it's great to hear that lobbying has paid off.

Commenting on my blog

I welcome readers' comments on my blog. Unfortunately, sometimes people go too far and use blog sites to post comments which are abusive or defamatory to third parties. For this reason, your comments, posted using the form on this page, don't appear until they have been moderated, to make sure that they don't cross that line.

My policy is that I will always let comments appear from people who disagree with me, in a spirit of promoting reasoned debate. However, I will not allow comments to be posted which are defamatory to someone else, or which are racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise likely to fail a 'public decency' test.

Consequently, there may be some hours delay after you post your comment until it appears on the public pages.
