Letter from the Chair

Dear Member,

Full Marks to anyone who saw this coming, it certainly took me by surprise, anyway we have a General Election on Thursday 8th June, and we as an Association must do everything we possibly can to get our candidate Michael Tomlinson re-elected.

Michael Tomlinson welcomes increased funding for school buildings in Mid Dorset and North Poole

Michael has welcomed the news that Corfe Hills, Poole Grammar and St Michaels, Colehill will all receive funding to improve the school buildings. This is part of an extra £367 million that the government has allocated for investment in buildings at over one thousand schools across the country. The condition improvement fund targets schools that need additional money for repairs, or to help them expand.  Investment in the schools is key to our long-term plan for education - our aim is that every child will have a good-quality place in a local school. As part of this, £18 billion has been made available for investment in schools in England over this Parliament - more than double the amount Labour spent in its first two terms combined.
