'Worst building' school officially reopening in Coventry
A school building described by the schools minister as "one of the worst" he had seen is being officially reopened after a £7m revamp.
In April 2012 Nick Gibb visited Richard Lee Primary School, where students have put up with damp classrooms, holes in the roof and crumbling brickwork.
Funding for refurbishment was announced the following month under the Priority School Building Programme.
Mr Gibb will officially reopen the school in the Wyken area later.
In July 2011 parents and pupils delivered a petition signed by about 3,000 people to Downing Street calling for the building to be repaired.
After touring the school in 2012, Mr Gibb said it was "clear the school is in a very bad condition".
He said: "It is very bad. I saw some damp, the windows are in a bad state, the ceilings are leaking."
