Anger over new classrooms

Have your say

EDUCATION bosses have been accused of “sticking two fingers up” at residents by planning to add mobile classrooms at Spalding Primary School.

A number of residents opposed plans to extend the school because of fears it would increase traffic and risk safety.

But the school had already agreed to take on more pupils and mobile buildings are needed to accommodate them.

Resident Phil Scarlett said: “I accept they have a duty to provide education but it is like sticking two fingers up at us.

“If the planning application was rejected because the infrastructure was unacceptable, how can they justify this?”

Debbie Barnes, director of children’s services, said the mobiles would have been necessary regardless of the outcome of the planning application and would only be in place until a permanent replacement was provided in Spalding.
