Benenden Primary School New School Building Update


Dear Parents,


At our most recent meeting with Kent County Council (KCC) on 15th September we discussed progress towards building our much-needed new school.

We are absolutely delighted to announce that during the meeting, Roger Gough - Cabinet Member for Children, Young People and Education - confirmed that KCC have reached an agreement with the Education and Skills Funding Agency for the full funding of the new school. This is fantastic news and removes the largest remaining obstacle to commencing building work! Conversations are now underway with potential contractors in order to determine dates for the work to begin and - most importantly! - when the new school building will open. The school's governing body will continue push for the earliest possible opening date and will keep you fully informed about progress. 

A large number of people have worked tirelessly for many, many years to make the building of a new school a reality. Whilst there is still much work to be done, today marks a very significant milestone towards providing the children of Benenden and the surrounding area with the facilities they richly deserve. 

If you have any further questions or comments about the new school then please email office@benenden-cep.kent.sch.uk
