It has been reported that the country’s best state primary school is in a row with parents over plans to excavate lead and asbestos during a major refurbishment, while the children are still on the premises.
Parents of the pupils at Fox Primary School in Kensington and Chelsea, London have said that the School did not plan to relocate the children before it carried out the major works.
These works have reportedly included the demolition of a cottage, a single-storey block and a toilet block. Plans also exist to remove a embankment and 14 trees and to put up a new building. The work would reportedly last until September 2016.
Most local people have expressed concerns about the proposed buildings, including the loss of trees, noise from additional pupils and the danger from the removal of the asbestos.
