Eighteen million pounds is being spent to make room for more children at Cornish schools.

The government money will fund more than eight hundred new places.

The eight primaries getting a slice of the cash include Indian Queens, Mount Hawke and the Bishops C of E.

Schools Minister David Laws announced the Government had approved all eight applications submitted by Cornwall Council for additional funding for school places under the Targeted Basic Need Programme, which will fund the provision of new, high quality school places in locations experiencing the greatest levels of pressure due to rising school numbers.

The successful schemes, totalling £18 million, are:

  • Indian Queens Community Primary School and Nursery     
  • Mount Hawke Academy                                                   
  • Nanpean Community Primary School                                
  • Pondhu Primary School                                                    
  • St Columb Minor Academy                                               
  • St Petroc’s C of E VA School                                            
  • The Bishops C of E Primary School                                   
  • Treleigh Community Primary School                                 

 
Andrew Wallis, the council's cabinet member for children and young people said: “This is brilliant news for the Council and for the eight schools which will benefit from this funding.

"We know that there has been increasing pressure on places in a number of areas in Cornwall and this money will enable us to create more places in these schools as well as the necessary strategic infrastructure.

“The Council will now be working with these schools and local stakeholders to provide the new facilities and I look forward to seeing them completed as quickly as possible."
