Stevenson Welcomes £260,000 for Aberdeenshire Schools

Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast is welcoming £260,000 of funding announced today (Wednesday) for Aberdeenshire to improve the learning environment in our schools and allow for greater partnership working between schools and colleges.

The money from the Inspiring Learning Spaces fund will be used to remodel four classrooms to create innovative teaching and learning environments that are flexible and motivating.

Mr Stevenson said:

“This latest funding underlines the SNP government’s commitment to ensuring every child receives a world class education and will create the modern and creative new learning spaces we need to achieve this.

“The SNP already has a strong record of delivery on schools - since 2007, the 520 schools across Scotland have been built or refurbished.

“But we know that we need to do more to ensure every child has an equal chance to succeed – that’s why the First Minister has made closing the educational attainment gap a priority. If re-elected in 2016, the SNP will continue to build on our strong record on education and will deliver in the face of harsh Westminster cuts.”

The Inspiring Learning Spaces fund encourages the creation of spaces for flexible learning and allows closer partnerships between schools and further education, in line with Curriculum for Excellence.

The fund complements the £1.8 billion Scotland’s Schools for the Future programme.
