The announcement follows a strong campaign by Liberal Democrat Kelly-Marie Blundell, PPC for the Guildford Constituency, who has supported the school's plans to upgrade their facilities. The money will come from the Priority Schools Building Programme, a £2bn government scheme spearheaded by the Liberal Democrats to rebuild those schools across the country suffering most from wear and tear. Schools included in the programme are now able to start developing detailed plans, and are expected to be completed in the next few years. Kelly-Marie Blundell said: "I am delighted to be able to announce money that will allow Cranleigh C of E Primary School to make badly needed improvements. School buildings that aren't up to scratch unfairly hold our children and young people back. Every child deserves the opportunity to achieve their full potential, and improving Cranleigh C of E Primary School will make sure that many more children in Cranleigh receive a good education." Liberal Democrat Councillor Ruth Reed said: "This announcement for Cranleigh C of E Primary School is fantastic news for families and teachers in and around Cranleigh. Cranleigh C of E Primary School badly needs to upgrade its class rooms and other facilities. This money fought for and delivered by Liberal Democrats in government will make a real difference. Last week the Conservatives set out plans to cut school budgets if they are in power by themselves after the election. I am proud that Liberal Democrats are continuing to make the case and win more investment for local schools. I'd like to thank all those who helped us campaign on this issue. Making sure all children in the Cranleigh area get a fair start in life should always be a top priority, and I can't wait to see the plans develop."
