When the Lib Dems were running the City, they allocated £1.2 million to Goldsmith Infant School and Brambles Nursery to meet the increasing need for more school and nursery places.

This money, plus some from the Government, and a contribution from the school, created a total of £1.5 million for improvements. However, professionals calculate another £209,000 is now needed to make up a shortfall in monies for the planned works.

Local Lib Dems have backed the bid for this additional £209,000 to complete the redevelopment of Goldsmith Infant School and Brambles Nursery.

In its last two reports, Ofsted rated Goldsmith Infants School and Brambles Nursery as 'Good' thanks to the hardworking staff and leadership of long-serving teacher and headmistress Mrs Alison Spittles, who sadly passed away recently.


Local Lib Dem campaigner Suzy Horton, a former primary school teacher, says:

"Good schools and decent classrooms with room to learn and play are vital to help educate children, so we're backing the bid."
