Parents met with governors to discuss their concerns about delays in replacing a dilapidated mobile classroom at their children’s school.

The classroom, which has housed years three and four at Colden School for the past 25 years, was damaged in bad weather earlier this year.

The school has saved £70,000 towards the project and seeks similar funding from the £400,000 which had been set aside for repairs to schools in Calderdale.

The governors’ plan is for a pitched roof stone clad addition to the main body of the school, giving pupils access to the school’s toilets without having to go outside.

It would also provide suitable access for anyone with a disability.

Coun Janet Battye and Coun Dave Young explained the timetable of decision making at Calderdale Council.

Parents resolved to write to councillors and attend the next cabinet meeting to add a sense of urgency.
