Scottish Government reveals plans for 30 school projects

Details of the next 30 schools to be built or refurbished in Scotland have been unveiled, the BBC has reported.

Education secretary Mike Russell made the announcement at Newbattle Community High School in Midlothian.

It comes a week after finance secretary John Swinney pledged an extra 12 schools would be built, taking the total from 55 to 67.

About £80m was brought forward following savings made by the Scottish Futures Trust.

Mr Swinney said the expanded Schools for the Future programme would help boost the construction industry.

Following publication of the list, Mr Russell said that providing the best possible school accommodation was vital to the successful delivery of Curriculum for Excellence.
