We are blessed with two excellent special schools in Castle Point, Glenwood and Cedar Hall.
Glenwood was rebuilt and expanded in 2018 and earlier this week I was invited along with local Essex County Councillors Beverley Egan and Andrew Sheldon, to see the work being done to replace the demountables at Cedar Hall School with a brand new permanent building.
The new block is a £4million Government investment administered by Essex County Council and is being built by construction firm Morgan Sindall. The work is due to be completed by the end of the summer holidays and gives the school new state of the art classrooms and facilities. The new block will will be entirely carbon neutral and we saw the solar panels installed on the roof to cut energy bills.
Everyone was asked to sign a panel of the modern insulating cladding that will play a key role in the energy efficiency of the building.
I was impressed with the design and quality of the build. This new block will improve the learning environment of the pupils at the school for many years to come.
