Building Schools for the Future
As part of the government’s ‘Building Schools for the Future’ programme, all of Calderdale’s secondary schools will be rebuilt or remodelled over the next ten years. A key aim of the programme is that schools should serve their communities by offering a wide range of services within the school facilities. These services would be staffed by various agencies on the school premises. When asked which services the panel members would like to access in this way the top five services were:
- Adult Education
- Sporting provision
- Citizen’s Advice
- The Police
- Health Information services.
Over 40% of respondents said they would be interested in helping us plan such a facility, preferably by answering a more detailed questionnaire but over 25% were willing to be more involved by being part of a group which meets regularly or attending a one-off meeting.
