THIRTEEN primary schools in Hounslow will receive government cash for providing a total of 1,616 additional places.
They will receive a share of £820 million, announced last month, to help address the huge shortage of primary school places in the country.
Four borough primary schools will receive cash for 236 new places each, though the exact sum is not known. They are Grove Park, Isleworth Town, Lionel Road School, and The Blue School CofE, Isleworth.
The other nine, which will receive funds to admit between nine and 125 pupils each are: Strand-on-the-Green infant and nursery, Chiswick: nine places; Strand-on-the-Green junior, Chiswick: 12; Cedars, Cranford: 24; Lindon Bennett, Hanworth: 30; Hounslow Heath infant and nursery: 116; Springwell infant and nursery, Heston: 116; Hounslow Heath junior: 120; Springwell Junior, Heston: 120; Feltham Hill infant & nursery: 125.
The expansion plans have been approved by Hounslow Council, which is waiting to learn how much cash the government will allow each school.
Councillor Tom Bruce, cabinet member for education, said the council needed those details to ensure it could meet the growing demand for places and cover the extra cost of insulating new classrooms from aircraft noise.
The Department for Education said the latest round of funding brings the total given to local authorities for new school places under the current government to more than £5 billion, which was enough to provide the 417,000 new places needed by 2015.
