Building work on a Hull Primary school has started following a turf-cutting celebration.

The Francis Askew education establishment’s £4.2 million project is among 10 schools in the East Riding and Hull area to be reconstructed.

The scheme will see current buildings demolished, except the dining block, and replaced with a fresh school constructed across two storeys.

Francis Askew’s main building is likely to be finished before October and the scheme will be finished in full by April of next year.

The work is part of the opening section of the coalition’s £2.4 billion Priority School Building Programme (PSBP).

The initiative will tackle 260 English schools classed as in the poorest condition.

Pupils, teachers and local and national government figures attended last Friday’s turf-cutting event.

David Laws, the Schools Minister, called this latest phase in the school’s development an “exciting” one. Mr Laws said that the number of school buildings which have opened since the start of PSBP has reached 16 with a further 55 now under construction.
