Major roofing work costing £367,000 will be carried out over the summer at Farsley Springbank Primary School, it’s been confirmed.
Work on the new roof will start on 8 July and be complete by 2 September to minimise any disruption to pupils.
A Leeds City Council report authorising the expenditure said the Springbank works were a priority and are part of a £6.7 million package of improvements funded by the local authority across the city.
Leeds LEP has been awarded the contract to carry out the work.

WLD reported last week how Farsley Farfield Primary School will also have more than £100,000 of work carried out over the summer by heating, air conditioning and plumbing specialists Sayes & Co.
While you’re here…
Producing your daily dose of West Leeds Dispatch comes at a cost!
There’s the hosting of the website you’re reading now, running our popular e-mail newsletter, membership of independent press regulator Impress, attending summer events, paying for equipment etc etc.
We need at least £200 a month just to break even – that’s money currently coming out of the pockets of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about what’s happening in our communities, connecting you with local groups and organisations as well as holding decision-makers to account and championing local issues.
And all that’s BEFORE we even think about paying something for people’s time – for instance, our editor puts in more than 24 hours a week in his ‘spare’ time to ensure The Dispatch publishes daily.
To put it bluntly, after nearly four years of daily publishing, we are not sustainable!
