New Schools for Belmont & Bowburn
After the LibDem & Tories scrapped the Building Schools for the Future Programme the prospect of new schools was bleak. However, Labour-led Durham County Council have funded a new £12 million Primary School in Bowburn and have just announced the plans for a £35 million development of a new Primary and Secondary School on the existing Belmont site.
This investment shows Labour’s commitment to providing the best possible opportunity for all our children.
It is has been an incredibly difficult year for School staff and pupils and we are so proud of the efforts they have all made. Labour led Durham County Council supported over 200 schools to stay open safely for essential workers during the pandemic and are committed to support all schools and children as they catch-up on their learning.
