Selco Builders Warehouse has provided building materials for the conversion of Bewsey Lodge Primary School's conservatory into a classroom.

Selco Builders Warehouse has provided building sand, board adhesive, plasterboard and skim bead for the creation of the new space which will host small year three groups when the new academic year starts in September.

Vicki Leach, a class teacher and PTA Chair of Bewsey Lodge, said: “We’ve had new pupils start at the school recently taking our total up to 370 and that, coupled with the requirements to provide small breakout areas to meet the needs of some pupils, meant we needed more classroom space.

“That brings with it its own challenges when it comes to funding so the support of Selco has been crucial and our huge thanks goes to them.

“We want to provide the best possible education we can to our pupils and this additional classroom will provide that opportunity.”

Paul Birtles, Manager of Selco Warrington, added: “Bewsey Lodge Primary School is less than a mile from our branch and we have a number of customers and colleagues who have children who attend there.

“Being able to make a donation which will help the school extend vital education provision will benefit the local community and that is something we are always keen to do at Selco.”
