New primary schools for Wokingham


I attended a meeting with Michael Gove to ask him in general terms about finance for the new primary schools in Wokingham that the Council is proposing.

Mr Gove agreed that many locations in the UK do now need more money for additional primary provision as the population has risen. He said he expected money to be made available for such projects. There should be money available for suitable new free school primaries, and through the usual capital programmes.

The next task is to work up good projects.
