Morley Memorial Primary School on Blinco Grove is one of the oldest buildings in the area, founded at the end of the 19th century. There are plans for improving the school buildings to bring them up to modern standards: three new classrooms plus long overdue repairs. The changes will enable the whole school to be on one site. The aspect likely to be the biggest hit with the children is a multi-use games area, similar to the one at Nightingale Avenue ‘Recreation Ground.
I am really pleased that the Council is investing in Morley, and the new plans will improve the learning experience. I know many people are concerned about what happens to the old Early Years building, and I am determined it should stay in community use. I amvery pleased that the Council is planning to tender it for a new nursery, as childcare in this area is in such short supply.’
