Axholme South ward member, Cllr David Rose and Andrew Percy MP visited the school to see the progress being made.

Cllr David Rose, cabinet member for Children, Families and Learning, said:

“This project for St Martin’s Voluntary Aided Primary will improve the space available to pupils for PE, collective worship and dining as well as providing a much needed disabled toilet facility to meet the needs of pupils at the school.

“It is a good example of partnership working to bring about benefits for children and young people in North Lincolnshire.

“To ensure we keep up with the increasing demand for school places in North Lincolnshire it is important that we make sure schools in North Lincolnshire have adequate space and resources. This is why we have invested millions of pounds in schools over the past few years.

“Providing better outcomes for children is a top priority for us; by improving the learning environment and creating more school places, we are giving children every chance to do well in school and beyond.”
