A total of 69 schools across the South West, including two in Bath, are to benefit from a £22.5million share of government funding to improve their facilities.
The schools have been allocated the money from £560 million of government funding to expand classrooms, upgrade facilities and improve the education of children across the whole country.
In Bath, Hayesfield Girls School and Moorlands Junior School will receive a total of £1,275,157.89.
The money will ensure they have well-maintained facilities to provide students with safe environments that support a high-quality education.
The new funding will bring the total allocated to improve the condition of school buildings to £2 billion this year, paving the way for the new transformative 10-year school building programme starting later this year with over £1billion funding for the first wave of 50 schools.
The funding announcement comes from the £560 million announced by the Prime Minister last month as part of his New Deal for Britain, to help the nation bounce back from coronavirus by investing in infrastructure and skills and creating jobs.
It is in addition to the £1.4 billion of capital funding for 2020-21 already announced in April and is provided through the Condition Improvement Fund (CIF).
Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said: “Investing in our school and college buildings helps create modern environments that lend themselves to great teaching, making sure every child has the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
“We have worked at great speed to release this additional £560million of condition funding to schools for projects this year to kick-start the economy and get the country moving again following coronavirus.
“This funding brings the total allocated to improve the condition of our school buildings to £2billion this year and paves the way for our new transformative 10-year school building programme starting later this year with over £1billion funding for the first wave of 50 schools.”
