Mrs Maclean said: “Well done to the 22 schools in Redditch for their successful bids for funding from the Government’s Conditions Improvement Fund. I’ve consistently lobbied for Government for more funding, having met the Education Secretary to discuss this just last month.

“I’m acutely aware of the pressures on school budgets here in Redditch. I meet regularly with head teachers and parents and understand the concerns on the front line.

“I’m sure this funding will be a big help for these schools to deliver projects to ensure they have well maintained facilities for their students.

“I’m sure teachers and parents will welcome this extra cash as this Conservative Government continues to invest in their children’s futures.”
