Dozens of West Norfolk schools are to receive additional money to help maintain their buildings as part of an investment programme announced by ministers this week.

More than £2 million has been allocated to schools in Norfolk, with around £330,000 allocated to schools across the borough for the 2015-16 financial year.

Around 50 schools and nurseries will receive a share of that cash, which has been welcomed by North West Norfolk MP Henry Bellingham.

He said: “This is obviously very positive news for local schools which will share in this extra money.

“It will help them to carry out extra repairs, and thus improve still further the excellent education they are giving my constituents.”

Elsewhere, more than £40,000 has been allocated to schools in Breckland, including Litcham School, Swaffham Infant School and the primaries in Narborough, Necton, Sporle and Weasenham.

Schools in Fakenham, West Raynham, Sculthorpe and Walsingham are among those in North Norfolk who will benefit from around £24,000 of additional money between them.

And the Sutton Bridge Primary has also been allocated more than £6,000 .
