    Default EVERY primary school in Liverpool is to be refurbished

    EVERY primary school in Liverpool is to be refurbished in a mulit-million pound investment programme.

    Crumbling buildings will be rebuilt and repaired as a priority with the new 7m government cash.

    But all of the city's 134 primary schools will receive a chunk of the money.

    Education minister Ruth Kelly today announced her desire to see all the country's most rund-down primary schools taken out of use by 2022.

    Liverpool will receive the funding over two years in 2009 and 2010.

    Following the first wave of improvements further government money could follow.

    The city council will identify the schools it believes to be in the greatest need of improvements.

    Ministers said they wanted the cash to be used to create high quality classrooms, kitchens and dining halls, together with sports and computer facilities fit for the 21st century.

    Research shows high-quality buildings help in a child's education and boost their ability to learn.

    Ms Kelly said: "We are putting our money where our mouth is.

    "It will take time but this government is committed to reversing the decades of neglect by transforming the learning environment of our youngest pupils."

    The leader of the Labour group on Liverpool council, Cllr Joe Anderson, today called on Liverpool council chiefs to ensure it spends the money in the "correct way" and for the benefit of all primary school children across the city.

    What primary schools are these then?? Our Libdem council is intent on closing as many primary schools as they can to lose surplus spaces...are they going to refurbish schools only to close them a year later? Or are they going to close schools, and use the money to put all the kids in portakabins?? Our school has no outstanding repairs, is in a large green space and is a bright, spacious and airy school - so why aren't the council supporting schools like ours instead of trying to close them??

    Not nearly enough, I fear.
