Herefordshire Council has approved funding for essential roofing repairs at Ashfield Park Primary School in Ross-on-Wye.

The works will see the deteriorated roofing materials on two school halls replaced.

The planned works, costing just over £185k are part of an overall local authority school buildings maintenance works (2021-23) programme, approved by cabinet on 17 December 2020. The programme will see DfE funding used to improve the facilities at a number of Herefordshire schools, including Ashfield Park, following in depth condition surveys on local authority owned school buildings.  

Following a tender process the contract for the work has been awarded to a local company, Central Roofing & Building Services Ltd.

The essential maintenance will be carried out before the winter with as little disruption as possible.

Steven Kendrick, Headteacher at Ashfield Park Primary School, said: “I’m really pleased that this final phase of our roof repairs will take place before winter time. Ashfield Park is an Ofsted rated ‘Good’ school and provides a high level of education, so it’s only fitting that the school facilities are also of a high standard for our pupils.

“We will keep parents fully informed about the timescale of the works and disruption to an absolute minimum for our pupils and staff.”
