Preliminary work is currently underway at Culverstone Green Primary School to finally replace the old school building.

The school is being manufactured by building expert, Portakabin, and is funded by the Education Funding Agency as part of the £4.4 billion Priority School Building Programme (PSBP), which has opened more than 170 new schools since 2014.

The new learning hub has been specially designed to have high levels of natural light to help improve concentration levels and increased access and space for outdoor play and learning. Thanks to the new building, children at Culverstone Green will have more usable outdoor space due to increased access to new play areas.

Headteacher, Ruth Doughty said: “After enduring conditions in mobile classrooms, the children and staff are really excited and motivated to be moving into a clean, bright and warm building. The new building and play spaces will make Culverstone Green Primary School a superb place for 21st century education.”
