School expansion cash
A £500,000 grant will facilitate the completion of a major building project at Broughton Jewish Primary to add a new floor and hall to the premises.
The Salford school, which has a growing pupil population, received another local authority grant last September to begin a two-phase expansion with ground floor classrooms and a refurbished entrance area. Now a second floor of classrooms will be added over its single-storey entrance building. A small hall will also be a much needed addition, according to governor Leonard Seitler.
“We have a large hall, but it’s been multi-purpose for assemblies, lunch and PE,” Mr Seitler explained. “The school is busy and every year the roll is growing. We’re very fortunate to get another grant for capital expenditure.”
