The enlargement of Rykneld Primary School is part of our long-term vision for education in Burton.  We have already invested over £20m in schools in Burton to ensure they are well placed to cope with increasing demand for school places, and this latest measure will ensure parents in the area have as much choice as possible when it comes to their child’s education.


This latest measure is part of our ambition to create a prosperous Staffordshire where young people can learn, grow and make a significant contribution to the success of the area.  By acting now, we can ensure we are ready to meet future pressures on pupil places in the area.”
