New School Plans Get Green Light From Government

Friday June 20 2014

THE government has committed to a new school in Barnsley.

The proposals for Elements Primary School have been approved by the Department for Education, with it set to cater for 420 pupils and 60 reception children.

Wellspring Academy Trust, who made the proposal, works in partnership with the college and council and will now work towards an opening in September 2015.

Josie Thirkell, chief executive officer of the trust, said: "It's incredible news, our success has been absolutely dependent on the community's support.

"We had to show the school is needed and we will now be able to start working towards making it a reality."

Why not put the money into failing schools to boost morale, provide equipment and provide staff who can do the job properly, also provide enough food for pupils as a hemsworth school on many occasions has ran out of food at lunchtime. This government needs to be out asap: /
