Llanfair Primary School to benefit from extra funding
Published 08 April 2014
The Vale of Glamorgan Council is continuing to invest in schools across the county with Llanfair Primary School the latest to benefit from funding to improve school buildings.
Over one million pounds of additional funding was set aside by the Council last month, follwoing approval of the Council's budget, to fund a number of school improvement projects across the Vale. The popular local school will receive over £120,000 which will be used to extend a classroom, provide an additional learning room, storage and replace the roof to the main building.
Cllr Chris Elmore, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, said: “I’m determined that local school children and teachers will have access to safe, pleasant working conditions. I’m delighted that we are able to fund improvements to Llanfair Primary School and in doing so further enhance a superb learning environment.”
Diane Normansell, Headteacher at Llanfair Primary School, said: “We’re very pleased to hear about the extra funding for our school. We have a very popular school in a lovely location, but we would like to see some improvements to the building as we know decent accommodation is good for the morale of both staff and pupils. The money will provide an extension to a very small classroom and a new roof.”
