School ready to reopen after £1.26m makeover

Roseberry Primary and Nursery School is ready to reopen after a £1.26m refurbishment.

The school, on Pelton Lane in Chester-le-Street, will be officially reopened by the Chairman of Durham County Council, Cllr Linda Marshall.

"The whole school community is thrilled with the end result. It's like having a brand new building with lots of space and new resources such as our dedicated cookery room.

"The children and staff love to come to the school and it's been a boost for the local area thanks to a newly refitted community room."

– June Lee, Headteacher
