Farmor's School will get a cash boost after county council plans were approved.

Nice schools in Gloucestershire ranging from pre-schools to secondary will receive the extra money, as well as more cash for improving buildings and expanding schools facilities.

The schools will get a £2.7million boost with Farmor's receiving £125,000 of the allocation.

Most of the money, £1.5million, will come from Section 106 contributions which are paid to local authorities by developers when planning permission is agreed.

Senior councillors at Gloucestershire County Council unanimously backed the cash injection at a council meeting at the end of April.

This is where the £2.7million will be spent and exactly what it will be spent on:

The proposal comes in part from the council’s pledge to dedicate £100million to helping schools across Gloucestershire.

Gloucestershire county councillor Lynden Stowe (C, Campden-Vale), cabinet member for economy, skills and growth, said: “Young people deserve to have access to good and outstanding school places close to their home, which have the best possible facilities.

“To make sure that becomes a reality, we promised to invest £100million in our county’s schools.

"This extra funding is just another step towards that promise.

"We are fully committed to making sure young people in Gloucestershire have a positive learning experience and improving their learning environment is one way we can do that.”
