New school at Morley Newlands

After years of campaigning Morley Newlands have just had the news that they are to have a new school.

I first contacted Leeds City Council about the issues at Morley Newlands four years ago. It’s great news that the children, staff and parents of Morley Newlands will finally get the new building they need and deserve. Parents, teachers and pupils always tell me how much better it is to learn in good quality surroundings. And with pupil numbers on the rise here in Morley, we need all our schools to have enough spaces for local children and to be great places to learn.

We’ve all been campaigning for years for the new building for Newlands, but at one point it looked like the school might just get some investment to make building improvements but not for the entirely new school. Yet the head told me this would make the most difference and provide the best value for money. We all did everything we could to put the case forwards for a new building. It’s going to make a massive difference and Im now looking forward to seeing the plans in detail.
