SCHOOL FACILITIES FUNDED BY SELL-OFFS
ANY school from which land is sold stands to receive funding for new facilities.
Swansea Council says every school where land is sold off could gain up to £50,000 for projects like improved ICT facilities or outdoor learning.
And it insists that only land which is surplus to requirements will be sold off.
A spokesman said: "We are planning a £73m transformation of city schools which will benefit pupils for generations to come. Swansea Council is required to find 50 per cent match funding for any investment secured from the Welsh Government.
"We are currently working with all schools to identify potentially available surplus land to help fund our share of the cost of the school building programme which is designed to ensure pupils learn in environments which are fit for purpose
"We are currently seeking views through the governing bodies affected at this time and we will review all comments when we have received them. Any funding generated from these land disposals will be reinvested in schools as part of the Quality in Education (QEd ) 2020 Programme".
