Award of contract for construction of new school hall at Thorney Island Primary School

The County Council has a statutory duty to provide sufficient school places for all children who need a place. Over recent years there has been an increase in pupil numbers at Thorney Island Primary School and an enlarged school hall is now required to provide sufficient and suitable accommodation for the additional children.


In June 2020 the Cabinet Member for Education and Skills approved the allocation of capital funding from the Basic Need Capital Programme to enable the project to proceed and delegated authority to the Director of Property and Assets to award the contract for the works (Decision reference ES01 (20/21).


Following receipt of this approval from the Cabinet Member, the Director of Property and Assets will be asked to award the construction contract to deliver the enlarged school hall.
