Work to start on school improvements
Improvements to a Flintshire primary school has moved a step closer.
Flintshire County Council is pleased to announce that work will start on Ysgol Glan Aber, Bagillt on 15 July.
Flintshire County Council, in partnership with the Welsh Government, is investing over £2.3m to transform Ysgol Glan Aber into a school fit for the 21st Century. This includes £1.3 m of Welsh Government’s funding to reduce infant class sizes through the creation of an additional classroom, which will allow teachers to devote more time and individual attention to each of their pupils. The funding will also provide a new hall and dining facilities.
The Council has appointed Kier, based at Wrexham, to carry out this improvement work. The scheme is funded by both Welsh Government and Flintshire County Council as part of the Welsh Government’s Reducing Infant Class Sizes Grant and Council’s capital investment programme.
Flintshire County Council’s Leader, Councillor Ian Roberts, said:
“This is an extremely important investment in Ysgol Glan Aber and shows our commitment to securing funds to continue to improve and update our schools. The modern facilities will provide an inspirational learning experience for our school children, for our young people and the wider community.”
Peter Commins, managing director at Kier Regional Building North West, commented:
“We are absolutely delighted to continue our relationship with Flintshire and thrilled to be starting on site at Ysgol Glan Aber. The improvements will provide modern teaching and learning facilities for staff and pupils of the school for years to come.”
