Schools in Gravesham and Dartford are set to share a £2.4 billion pot of cash to rebuild their classrooms.

Chantry Primary School in Ordnance Road, Gravesend, Culverstone Green Primary School and Meopham School in Wrotham Road and York Road Junior Academy in Dartford are all part of the programme to rebuild 261 schools in the worst condition.

In total, design work has begun at 234 schools – 90% of the programme.

The government says all schools will be delivered by the end of 2017.

Schools Minister David Laws said: “The Priority School Building Programme is making great strides in ensuring vital building work takes place at some of the schools in the worst state across the country.

“It is providing much better value for money than previous schemes, and forms part of the government’s drive to deliver the best schools to help deliver both a stronger economy and a fairer society.”
