Primary schools in Armley, Swinnow and Pudsey are being boosted by major repair works over the summer holidays.

St Bartholomew’s in Armley will have £280,778 spent on it for roofing and window replacement work. The contract has been awarded to Kingfisher UPVC Windows & Doors.

Swinnow Primary will see roofing repair work carried out by Tucker and Tunstalls Ltd for £278,799.

And Greenside Primary in Pudsey will have £212,173 spent on fire safety work, which will be carried out by Chippendale Builders Limited.

The funding comes from the council’s planned maintenance programme and a report authorising the expenditure adds: “The rationale for addressing these priorities is to maintain safe, warm, watertight learning environments, and to address the most common causes of unplanned school closure and loss of teaching time.”
