Pupils and staff at asbestos-riddled Sutherland Primary Academy to move

Pupils and staff are to move into their new £2.27 million temporary home next month while plans are underway to rebuild their old asbestos-riddled school.

Children from Sutherland Primary Academy are currently having to be bused to Penkhull for lessons every day as their former school building in Blurton has been shut on safety grounds

Now the Education Funding Agency has put up the money for temporary classroom units on the Blurton site.

Headteacher Garry Boote said: “The big move takes place the week following half term."

The school's former building had to shut in October after assessors said there was the potential for a major asbestos fall from the ceiling. Stoke-on-Trent City Council is set to install the pre-constructed units on the playing fields.
