Dagenham school in line for �650,000 emergency boost

Dagenham Park School is to receive an emergency cash injection of more than half a million pounds.

Barking and Dagenham cabinet yesterday approved the �650,000 to �create extra learning space at the CoE secondary being rebuilt under the Building Schools for the �Future �programme.

The council would not say how it would affect the school as information was commercially sensitive.

The plan is highlighted in a new cabinet report dated June 14.

A council spokeswoman said: “The report relates to the business and financial affairs of a third party and as such we will not be able to comment at this point in time.”

Dad-of-two Ian Wall, 40, lodged a complaint to the Ombudsman about a �perceived lack of consultation on the plans.

He maintains the new �secondary in School Road will destroy the privacy of more than a dozen families.
