Slinfold CE Primary School - Funding for Replacement of Modular Teaching Accommodation

The County Council has a statutory duty to provide sufficient school places for all children who need a place.


Slinfold Primary School, close to Horsham, is a 140 place Primary School incorporating 5 classrooms and a pre-school on site. Two of the five classrooms are in 30 year old modular classrooms which have significant suitability and condition issues due to the age of the buildings. These modular classrooms provide capacity for 60 pupils and projections indicate that there is continuing need for these places in future years to ensure continued capacity at the school for children of primary age in the village and the wider locality.


Approval is required for the allocation of funding from the Capital Programme to replace the two modular classrooms at Slinfold CE Primary School which are nearing the end of their life, with the new accommodation expected to be available from Autumn 2022. In addition the budget will fund all associated fees, ICT and furniture and equipment.
