Cleves Primary School in East Ham held a celebration event today, Friday 13th October 2017 to mark the official opening of its new building.
The new build, which was formally opened by The Right Honourable Stephen Timms MP, allows for the permanent expansion of the school. It accommodates up to 150 pupils and enables Cleves to offer local places to local children now and in the future.
This school expansion was part of Newham’s basic needs programme to ensure that every child who needs one has a school place as close to home as possible and in suitable accommodation.
Headteacher Sarah Lack said:
"Cleves has continued to see a growth in the number of primary pupils coming to our school and we have worked to ensure that they all have a school place close to where they live where possible. I’m sure staff and pupils will enjoy and benefit greatly from their new facilities."
