A small village school is to benefit from a new borough council programme to scrap temporary classrooms.
Cotton End Primary School saw work begin to demolish three temporary classrooms on Monday, July 28.
The project is part of a long-term plan to build permanent buildings in place of temporary rooms ensuring school classrooms are fit for children to learn in.
The landmark event was attended by Bedford Mayor Dave Hodgson who said: “We are delighted to get the abolition of temporary classrooms in Bedford borough underway.
“This is a major programme of improvements for local schools, delivering buildings and facilities fit for current and future generations of students.
“The programme is a key feature of our commitment to support schools to continue to drive up standards on behalf of all local children.”
David Coleman of Kier Construction, the company carrying out the work said: “The new classrooms will be manufactured off-site and transported in.
“They are timber and external clad which fully meet current building regulations and will be a great addition to the school. It’s great for us and the school the Mayor attended. We all look forward to viewing the completed project.”
