The Government will be urged to fast-track building work at Exeter Road Primary School.

East Devon’s MP Sir Hugo Swire stepped in to help after pupils sent him letters about water damage at the school.

Sir Hugo pledged to highlight pupils’ concerns with the secretary of state for education, Justine Greening, after the school was told it may have to wait until 2018 before the repairs could be carried out.

It has been estimated that the school needs £800,000 to repair the roof, old electrics and heating.

Exeter Road’s headteacher Paul Gosling said: “Hugo Swire had a look at the building work that needs to be done and he is talking to the secretary of state for education, Justine Greening, and asking if we can be prioritised to get the work done before 2018.”
