|Alice Stevens School *|
|Ernesford Grange Community School *|
|President Kennedy School|
|Richard Lee Primary School *|
|St Thomas More Catholic Primary School *|

“I am delighted that all seven school put forward by Coventry City Council have been prioritised for the Priority School Building Programme. Of those seven schools, six (denoted by*) have been designated as being in the very worst condition and work on them will be taken forward straight away using capital grant.
“Richard Lee is one of the six schools in the very worst condition and I’m sure that everyone at the school will be overjoyed to hear of their inclusion in the programme. The news will certainly come as a relief to teachers, parents and pupils who have been forced to work and learn in absolutely dreadful conditions.
“Richard Lee is well led with an engaged and supportive governing body and teaching staff and fantastic pupils and I hope their inclusion in this programme will give them the school building they deserve and that reflects the good work they do there”.
