Press Release - Temporary Third Primary School Cambourne

This is a positive step forward in ensuring that all Cambourne primary age children are educated in the village from September 2009 meeting the commitment given by Cambridge County Council.

This is an excellent example of how Cambourne Parish Council can take the lead and working with the County Council and McA Developments can achieve a positive result that benefits the Community of Camborne.

The Parish Council is working with the County Council and Comberton Educational Trust to ensure the site is suitable for the temporary school. A planning application will be submitted outlining the proposed layout of the School by the County Council and Comberton Educational Trust.

McA Developments Ltd has given the fullest support to Cambourne Parish Council in making the site available, and has offered their help in getting the temporary school open for September 2009.

The Parish Council in granting the use of the Burial Ground as the site of the Temporary Primary School will actively work with all parties to ensure that the permanent Third Primary School is constructed in Cambourne within the next two years.
The Parish Council is planning to open the Burial Ground once the reinstatement works have been completed in line with the original time scale.

"I am delighted that the Parish Council has been able to play a key role in getting additional primary aged schooling for Cambourne, the temporary school will provide a vibrant environment for the children of Cambourne to learn in"
